Fees

Child care is the second highest cost faced by families with young children in British Columbia. The additional spaces provided by the Queen's Park YMCA Child Care centre will assist in providing affordable child care in Penticton.

We are proud to announce that Queen's Park YMCA Child Care has been accepted to participate in the Child Care Fee Reduction Initiative through the Ministry of Children and Families. This means that the fees will be reduced for all families in Infant and Toddler Care and 3–5 Care. You'll see the reduced fees listed in the tables below. 

Parents with children enrolled in YMCA Child Care have an opportunity to apply for the Affordable Child Care Benefit through the Ministry of Children and Family Development (Child Care Subsidy Centre). Furthermore, as a charity, the YMCA of Okanagan also provides financial assistance to those in need. If financial circumstances are limiting your ability to register for child care, you may be eligible for one or both types of assistance. Learn more
