CHILD CARE

 

YMCA Curriculum

The YMCAs Across Southwestern Ontario has a well ┬Éestablished, research based approach to early learning. Our curriculum YMCA Playing to Learn has been successfully implemented in all programs for children since 2006. In 2006, all YMCAs across Canada adopted this curriculum. YMCA Playing to Learn 2nd Edition was published in 2015. This edition incorporates new research, best practices, knowledge and experience. There is more information on infants and toddlers and it has a greater focus on the social and emotional development of the young child.

The YMCA school age Curriculum A Place to Connect is for children, it will assist YMCA staff working with young people to deliver a comprehensive program that adopts a holistic approach demonstrated through planning, programming, and high-quality interactions. This Curriculum is an essential component in creating a high-quality school-age program and will begin a national roll-out in 2016. 

The YMCA has been involved in shaping the development of the provincial early learning framework by sharing YMCA Playing to Learn and our training materials to support educators in implementing a play-based approach. The goals and approaches of the YMCA curricula align in philosophy, standards, and recommendations with the provincial frameworks below. It is gratifying to see Ministry of Education embrace play and adopt a very similar approach.
