Our Programs

The Boys and Girls Club of Yarmouth has been offering childcare for 51 Years

Our Centres are licensed facilities, inspected annually by the province of Nova Scotia. We follow the regulations set out in the Nova Scotia Day Care Act and Regulations, which are monitored by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. Our staff is highly qualified and experienced and all staff are trained in First Aid. We offer safe, clean environments where your child can have fun experiences and learn new skills each day.

The children are given 2 snacks and 1 lunch per day based on the Manual for Food and Nutrition in Regulated Childcare Settings. We follow a high quality program which follows Nova Scotia’s Early Learning Curriculum Framework, Capable, Confident and Curious. Our centers are all focused on play based learning with emphasis that the children are the leaders and the teachers are the facilitators.  Planning is done around the children’s interests and the teachers provide the materials and activities to enhance their learning.
