Whether it’s before or after school, enrol your kids to learn, play and grow within a safe environment at the YMCA Before and After School Care.

We keep your child safe, happy and nurtured during their time with us so that you can concentrate on your busy day. The YMCA programme is designed around three enriching themes - ACTIVE, CREATE & LIFE SKILLS, focused to ensure their time with us brings the best outcome for your child. We keep the screen time to a minimum unless it supports our skills-based activities. 

Life Skills

  • Bicycle maintenance
  • Water safety
