Preschool day camps: the summer alternative to daycare
The YMCAs of Québec - May 18 2016
We all know about day camps, but did you know that the YMCA has preschool camps for kids aged 2 to 5?
If your child is in daycare, preschool camp is perfect alternative to your regular service when it closes for a summer break. What’s more, it gives your child the opportunity to make friends in the neighbourhood, especially if he or she goes to daycare at your work.
Preschool camps are also a great way to get older kids ready for kindergarten. In fact, the Y’s program has been designed to make this transition easier for 4- to 5-year-olds.
Offered at the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, West Island and Westmount YMCAs, preschool camps have an excellent camper/counsellor ratio and plenty of sports and cultural activities, including weekly swimming lessons and occasional themed activities.
As an alternative to your usual daycare service, for a chance to make new friends or simply to change up your routine, pre-school camps are a valuable tool for your child’s overall development.
