The YMCA Canberra has a long history in the Canberra community and are proud to offer high quality early education and care services to the local communities of Belconnen, Gungahlin and Weston Creek.
Sharing the responsibility of raising children in our community, the YMCA Canberra is committed to providing education and care that aligns with family values and seeks to extend a home like environment for the children and families attending.
When you enter a YMCA Early Learning Centre you will notice the warm relationships, careful interactions with children that foster feelings of safety and security, the smells of fresh food cooking as well as the play environments that are carefully constructed to engage children's curiosity.
"We know that children benefit greatly from strong relationships, partnerships and links between local community organisations, because these partnerships support children's interest and skill in being active contributors to their community," YMCA Canberra said.
"Being at the heart of a community means we can engage not just with the people, but the environment of which they are a part.
"Looking beyond the fence and gate, it is important that we go out and see, hear, smell and touch all that is on offer."

YMCA Early Learning Centres take part in a range of additional curriculum experiences to enhance learning such as visits to local Aged Care friends, bush, kindy, local schools, parks, ovals and libraries.
Educators at the YMCA are specifically trained in early education and care and, with the YMCA being an accredited organisation under the national Safeguarding Children and Young People program, you know that the YMCA provides the highest level of safety and trust.
With the belief that we grow and develop as a whole person in mind, body and spirit - this is a strong value for YMCA Canberra. Each day at their centres they embrace the chance to laugh, learn and grow as a community, together as one.
