Hamilton YMCA have 14 locations where we provide Out of School Care for children and young people.
Before and after school programmes provide a safe, fun space for children to attend within the school grounds outside of school hours.
We strive to help all children reach their full potential in mind, body and spirit. We do this through a range of activities, from cooking and crafts, to sports and role play and quite zones.
We also encourage communication, teamwork and help children develop social skills by teaching the core YMCA values of Caring, Respect, Responsibility and Honesty.
We provide a light afternoon tea which changes daily. This always includes fruit or vegetables along with sandwiches, crackers or popcorn. Taking into consideration children's allergies or restrictions and catering accordingly.
