New Licensed Childcare Centre to Open in Guysborough in 2023

The YMCA of Cape Breton is excited to share that we will be opening a licensed childcare centre in the Guysborough community in 2023!

As part of Nova Scotia’s childcare expansion and the Canada Wide Early Learning Agreement, the YMCA of Cape Breton has partnered with the Strait Regional Centre for Education to open a centre in the Chedabucto Education Centre/Guysborough Academy. This new centre will accommodate 26 children and is expected to open prior to summer 2023.

This centre will deliver our high-quality YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum and will be staffed by a professional team of Early Childhood Educators. We will be looking to hire exceptional Early Childhood Educators and other experienced staff from the Guysborough community and surrounding area.
