Allardyce, personal photo, February 19, 2013 C. Allardyce, personal photo, February 19, 2013 (S. Cash, personal photo, February 28, 2013) (YMCA of Greater Toronto, n.d.) For families seeking licensed child care spaces, the Centralized Waiting List greatly simplifies the process by allowing parents/guardians to register their child or children on the waiting list of several child care services in one step." (Child Care Information, n.d.) (Childcare.net, n.d.) Benefits of Non-Profit DayCare YMCA is made up of many facilities (Health and fitness, employment/ education, leadership/ volunteer, housing, community and justice, etc.) thus funding is passed throughout all facilities if one is in need. (M. Young, personal communication, February 28th 2013) More opportunity for those who might otherwise not get the chance to enroll their child in daycare (J. Bell, personal communication, February 19th, 2013) Tend to be less expensive than for profit centres (A. Etmanskie, personal communication, February 18, 2013) Main focus is on providing quality care to children, not making money; corners are not cut to make profits (J. Noseworthy, personal communication, February 26, 2013) Working in non-profit fulfills the desire to give back to your community & be content with the things you have; very rewarding (M. Unus, personal communication, February 19, 2013) Benefits of Non-Profit in Canada The benefits of non-profit daycare organizations have been cited by The Childcare Resource and Research Unit, “an early childhood education and child care (ECEC) policy research institute with a mandate to further ECEC policy and programs in Canada.” (Child Care Canada, n.d) "Canadian research on quality […] shows that —as a group—for-profit centres consistently obtain lower process (also called “observed” or “global”) quality ratings than non-profit and public centres." (Child Resource and Research Unit, 2011 para 3)

"In addition, auspice [program owners] predicts quality through its influence on staff wages, ECE training and other key characteristics" (Child Resource and Research Unit, 2011 para 3)

Also stated in the same document

Cleveland and Krashinsky’s 2004 analysis found that while non-profit centres do better on every measure, differences were greatest on measures and sub-scales regarding children’s personal care, use of materials, activities and teaching interactions linked to language development, teacher interactions with children, staff communication with parents and supporting the staff needs.
