In-school before & after school care

Partner with YMCA

YMCA is a not-for-profit organisation committed to re-invest in youth development and healthy living opportunities for your local community. By investing in us, you're investing in your area.

In-school before & after school care

Before and after school care should be carefully personalised, led by well-trained, caring staff, and of benefit to both your school and its students. We work with you to provide a positive environment where children can grow & develop. Because each YMCA centre and local community is unique, we understand schools are too.

Our history is strong; we would love to be a part of your future.

With low staff to child ratios, healthy financial returns for the school, and full admin and organisation taken care of by our team, you’ll discover it’s easy to implement before and after school care programmes and holiday programmes with YMCA. We know this because our partner schools and parents tell us.

Deputy Principal

"YMCA and Hamilton West School have developed and maintained a close relationship, and work hard to complement each other’s’ aims and objectives. I can nominate students in need from the school to receive free access to before or after school care and/or the YMCA Holiday Programme. This very generous offer shows that YMCA is about helping people in the community, including those who are vulnerable and need a helping hand. It’s my pleasure to acknowledge YMCA as a high quality organisation, well led and people-"

Deputy Principal Hamilton West School

"YMCA has excellent systems for communication and have always kept our school and parent community well informed regarding what is happening with the programme. The programme is well staffed with appropriate ratios. Our parents are very pleased with the quality of the programme provided for their children. I have no hesitation endorsing the YMCA programmes."

"Please pass on my regards to the team at North Shore. I walked away confident that the centre and the programmes are doing everything they can to make sure that it is a safe and welcoming place for children, and that parents’ and guardians’ evaluation and feedback is respected and taken into consideration."
