The YMCA in Canada strives to be a world leader in the development of healthy and active children and youth. The experiences that your children have in their YMCA before and after school care programs are a vital part of our overall strategy for Healthy Child Development. By completing this survey you will be helping us better understand if we are meeting your needs and providing a positive growth experience for your child during the critical before and after-school hours.

Take this chance to talk with your child about what happens at the Y! You may wish to invite your child to join you while completing this survey, or review the questions now and come back to complete the survey after talking with your child about their experience. Either way, it's a great time to find out more about what they really think about their time at the Y.
