York Child Development & Family Services Inc. promotes the optimum development of children through the delivery of high quality early learning programs and services and through educational and informal support to parents.

 

WE HAVE REOPENED

YCD worked with the local health department & all levels of government to ensure appropriate protocols and enhanced health and safety measures were in place prior to reopening during the pandemic recovery period. 

CHILD CARE: July 13 we began accepting children back into our child care programs.

EARLYON:  September 15 outdoor in person programming began in parks.

CAPC: September 16 outdoor in person programming began in parks.

YCD has developed Pandemic Response Plans (PRP), which outline the enhanced health & safety protocol along with additional mitigation strategies put to limit the spread of COVID-19.  Please review PRPs for our programs on the individual tabs.

 

GOALS OF OUR PROGRAMS

Staff will be working with a small group of children during this reopening period.  The building of supportive, caring and responsive relationships is at the forefront. We need to create a safe space where children can play and interact with adults and their peers.

 

Mental Health Supports for Children and Families

This is a challenging time for children and their families. Our programs play an important role in helping children understand the current situation in a way that is honest, accurate and minimizes anxiety or fear. We need to support children and families through the pedagogy of care. Play is critical to children’s mental health and caring adults in environments with materials, space and time support it. Should you or your family need support please feel free to reach out.
