Our growing Child Care Program continues to evolve, introducing another play-based curriculum that adds to the YMCA Playing to Learn™ curriculum that was implemented in 2006: YMCA A Place to Connect™ which allows children registered in before and after school care to shape the program by providing opportunities for choice and leadership with a focus on strengths and the development of skills and relationships.
YMCA Northumberland was proud to achieve the prestigious accreditation from the Imagine Canada’s Standards Program in October 2018. The Standards Program awards accreditation to charities and nonprofits that demonstrate compliance in five fundamental areas: board governance; financial accountability and transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement.
YMCA Northumberland Day Camp celebrated 30 years as an Ontario Camps Association accredited camp, helping kids achieve goals, build self-esteem, meet new friends and have fun outdoors. This camp accreditation gives parents the peace of mind that a rigorous set of standards ensuring safety and quality programming will be upheld. In addition, the safety of children in our care is a priority of the YMCA; there is continual annual investment in our YMCA Child Safety and Protection Plan.
