Finding reliable childcare is a challenge almost every parent can relate to. The YW Childcare Centre in Inglewood is a licensed facility that offers full-time, part-time and drop-in space for children up to five years of age. We believe in quality childcare that encourages your child’s individual development, emphasizing creative play and child-centred activities.

In accordance with Alberta’s relaunch strategy, YW Childcare is now open and available to the public with full-time, part-time and drop-in spaces. We are following Alberta Health Service guidelines by limiting class sizes, performing health screenings upon entry and increasing sanitizing schedules.

Safiya’s Story

Safiya and her family moved to Calgary last year from Syria with their three-year-old twins and found herself registering for YW’s Canadian Employment Skills program and childcare. The twins had never been in group care in a childcare setting before and did not speak English. As the weeks passed, the girls began to run into the center at the start of the day, and began speaking some English words to help them communicate with their new friends. Safiya repeatedly talked about how much the girls loved “school.” After their term with us, we heard from the family and had visits from them as well, telling us how much they miss “school.”
