Choose a Career with YMCA Child Care!


If you love working with children, we’d love to work with you! 

YMCA Child Care offers a world of options and opportunities. 

Join a team that’s as passionate about child care as you are and has the trust and respect of professionals and families across  Northeastern Ontario. When you work with the Y, you work with an organization that has a 170+ year history of nurturing  potential and helping kids grow up strong and confident.

A child care career with the Y allows you to give your best and be your best - backed by professional development and support,  competitive pay, benefits and program discounts from day one.

Respected by parents. Trusted in our community. Loved by children. 

With more than 50 years in the child care business and as a trusted licensee of the Ministry of Education, the YMCA is one of the  most recognized and well respected brands in the North. What’s more, parents and kids love the quality assurance, well-rounded  programming, and focus on learning through play.

When you become part of the YMCA family, we make it easy to do what you love, with the ones that matter most to you. ​PLUS​,  your family joins our family - 400 employees strong in the North - with all of the benefits that go along with it, including child care  fee subsidies for qualifying families and a YMCA membership. 

We’re now recruiting to join our child care team:
