In July 2021, the YMCA of Greater Toronto opened a new infant, toddler and preschool Child Care Centre at St. Peter Catholic Elementary School!

The YMCA of Greater Toronto provides a positive, safe and nurturing environment where children have the tools to enhance their social, intellectual, physical and emotional development. 

The YMCA Early Learning and Care programs create rich learning environments for children to reach their full potential, and are designed to nurture development through the YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum.

The Playing to Learn curriculum is based on the philosophy that young children learn best through play. 

Qualified Early Childhood Educators facilitate play experiences that help children develop foundational skills in language and literacy, mathematics, science and technology and the arts.  

YMCA Educators: 

  • Observe, document and communicate regularly about your child’s progress
  • Plan activities based on the observed interests, reactions and cues of the children
  • Foster healthy social connections among children

If you are interested in registering your child for child care at St. Peter Catholic Elementary School, please contact Alicia Vetro at 905-699-9311 or
