Parenting Time Alternatives is YW Calgary’s flexible, full-fee, supervised service. In our bright, engaging Parenting Time room, parents/caregivers will have privacy for their supervised parenting time, without other families sharing the same space. The Parenting Time room has a variety of toys, games, craft materials and supplies for use during your supervised parenting time, with access to a contained outdoor play space.
Flexible days and times can be booked, dependent on staff availability. Fees are charged per hour, with visits up to a maximum of 4 hours in length. Fees are paid by the parent/caregiver accessing services, however other payment arrangements can be accommodated if agreed upon by both parties.
There is currently no waitlist for the Parenting Time Alternatives program. Both parents must be in agreement to utilizing the program and complete an intake before supervised parenting time can be scheduled.

YW Calgary also offers monitored exchanges, which take place at our Hub location on Saturdays and Sundays. We facilitate the safe and conflict-free transfer of children between non-custodial and custodial parents for unsupervised visitation when parents are prohibited from having direct contact or have requested no contact with the other parent.
