YMCA Survey for Child Care at School for the Deaf

Dear Parents/Guardians of the children who will be attending the Newfoundland School for the Deaf in September 2015,

The YMCA of Northeast Avalon has been delivering quality programs and services to children and their families for more than four decades.  We currently operate a 60 space licensed center which includes infant care to school age, licensed school age programs in 15 locations as well as summer camps.  Y school age child care programs are licensed and regulated by the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Children start the program at the end of their school day and parents can pick them up at any time before 6 pm.  The fee includes a nutritious snack as well as full day service for professional development days.

We would like to better serve you by offering early morning drop off and school-age child care at School for the Deaf.  Please take a moment to complete the survey below by following the link provided.


Thank you

Olga Sullivan
