UPDATE December 1, 2022: The Ontario Ministry of Health has just released a NEW Screening Tool for all children attending Child Care and/or School Settings. YMCA Child Care and Early Learning Centres request that all parents complete the Screening Tool every morning for each child before arriving at their Child Care location.
Copies of this new Screening Tool as well as 5-pack Rapid Antigen Test Kits (for home use) are available upon request at all of our locations. We will also have masks and hand sanitizer available, should you choose to use them.
Thank You for your ongoing support through this time, as we strive to keep our YMCA Child Care and Early Learning environments a safe, happy, and healthy place to learn and grow together in play.
