Supporting Children of Essential Workers — School-Aged Care for Kelowna Families
Thank you for serving our community.
The YMCA of Okanagan plans to provide child care to essential service workers in our community.
Licensed child care for school-aged children (5–12) is planned to operate Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m, starting Tuesday, April 14. Weekly registration is available for $210/week at the Kelowna Family Y.
Please use the following survey to indicate your need. We will contact you when we are able following the completion of the survey.
Essential Service Workers (ESWs) are those individuals considered critical to preserving life, health and societal functioning — including emergency responders, front-line health care workers, and critical infrastructure and supply chain (e.g. food, medicine) workers.
If you are unsure if your job is considered an essential service, please reference this list from the Government of British Columbia.
