For over 65 years, YWCA Cambridge has been a leader in offering innovative child care in Cambridge. Find out more about the programs we offer.

To register your child at one of our Child Care Centres please contact the Centre Supervisor at the location of your choice. The Supervisor will be able to advise you as to availability of space, answer any questions you might have, arrange for a personal tour and provide you with any forms that you will need.

In the Region of Waterloo, child care centres use OneList as the system for managing waiting lists and registration.  Once you have selected the centre that you would like to enrol at or be on the waiting list for, you must complete an online application using OneList Waterloo Region at

Our Child Care Centres offer a variety of programs, from toddler to school-age, ages 18 months to 12 years. Full and part-time options are available. Each Centre provides its own mix of options, and all programs are fully licensed by the Ministry of Education.
