YMCA Redwood Child Care Centre

About Us

Operated by the YMCA of Lethbridge since 2020, Redwood Childcare Centre has been fully renovated and updated to meet YMCA’s high standards for your child’s care.  

Located at 3 Elm Crescent South Lethbridge, the facility has a capacity of 44 children with four childcare rooms, one for ages 12 -18 months, two for ages 19 months – 3 years, and one for 3 – 4.5 years old.

Your child is cared for by experienced YMCA employees who are certified through an Early Childhood Education Program or a Child and Youth Care Program. 

Subsidy is available for eligible lower-income families. Read more below.

Playing To Learn

YMCA Early Learning and Care programs are designed to nurture the development of your child in all areas through our YMCA Playing to Learn™ curriculum.

Playing to Learn encourages engagement, social interaction, imagination, a joy of learning, and will nourish the connection between learning and play, as well as your child’s holistic development and wellbeing.

For A Healthy Start

Outdoor and Loose Parts Play

Your child will be encouraged to engage with their environment in all seasons for a minimum of one hour per day (weather depending).

This open-ended play environment provides your child an opportunity to engage in free and unstructured play in a natural setting. When children are encouraged to explore without intrinsic goals, they become problem solvers, gain confidence, and learn to collaborate.

Communication and Insight

Gaining deeper insight into your child’s unique interests, needs and abilities is easier than ever with HiMama.

It is a secure and private app which allows educators to post updates on your child’s day complete with photos and videos, learning and development stories, newsletters, notices as well as communicate important news to you in real time.

Meals and Menus

Your child receives quality, chef-prepared lunch, and snacks on a four-week menu rotation that is available to parents in advance.
