Update regarding Before & After School Care

Hello Begbie Families,


With the new school year underway, we want to provide you with a status update on the opening of our YMCA Before and After school Care Program in your school community. In our last communication, we had stated that due to an inspection that still needed to be completed by the City of Vancouver, followed by a final inspection to be conducted by Vancouver Coastal Health before we would receive our license, October would be the earliest that the program would open. 

Over the past several weeks we have followed up with the City of Vancouver but have yet receive a confirmed date for when its final inspection will take place. We are still hopeful that we will be able to welcome your child(ren) into the program in October but given the delay in hearing from the City of Vancouver there is a possibility that we will not be up and running until late October or early November. 

Once our program does open we will do everything we can to accommodate a start date for your child(ren), as we understand that notice may need to be given to another child care provider you are currently registered with. 

Just a friendly reminder that if you have not yet submitted your registration forms, please send them in as soon as possible.

As soon as we hear from City of Vancouver or receive more information, we will connect with you again and provide another update. Thank you again for your patience.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,


Cathy Poole

Before and After School Care - YMCA

Hello Bebgie Families,


As you know from our previous update we had hoped our YMCA Before and After School Care Program would be up and running for the first day of school on Tuesday, September 4thUnfortunately, this will not be the case as the City of Vancouver still needs to complete its final inspection before it can issue us occupancy, followed by a final inspection by Vancouver Coastal Health that needs to be conducted before we can receive our license. Therefore, we are now aiming to be open in October and when a date has been confirmed, we will let families know.

We understand that this will likely require you to make alternate child care arrangements in the interim. Once our program does open we will do everything we can to accommodate a start date for your child(ren), as we understand that notice may need to be given to another provider.

If you have not yet submitted your registration forms, please send them in as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued patience and we look forward to welcoming your child(ren) and family to our YMCA Kids Club community in the near future. 


Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
