Child Care

Child care is not available at Earl Buxton School. 


The YMCA of Northern Alberta is the largest and most trusted provider of not-for-profit child care in the city. We provide child care from birth to 12 years of age, depending on the center you choose. 

YMCA Child Care offers an array of benefits for your child:

  • Daily communication and feedback between parents and staff (written daily reports in  daycare).
  • Free YMCA Child Membership allowing access to swimming lessons and other YMCA drop- in programs.
  • Nutritious (and allergen aware) morning and afternoon snacks.
  • School-age care provided during non-school days and holidays so parents are able to  continue working.
  • Special events and field trips.
  • Wide range of physical activities offered to promote healthy development.
  • Connections to other families at Family Events held throughout the year to celebrate    special occasions.

 Riverbend YMCA Child Care is serving children attending the Earl Buxton School.
