Before and After School Care

We will take care of your child before or after school.

YMCA Before and After school care provides a fun environment and ensures your child leaves safely from school while you manage your other commitments. Our after school care programmes offer a variety of activities including art, crafts, cooking, sports, games and free play. We know kids always come home from school hungry, so we’ll also provide a healthy afternoon tea.You can rest easy knowing that your child is safe and happy at any before school care activities or OSCAR after school care that they go to.

Most centres provide healthy breakfasts and afternoon tea, and there are supervised homework sessions too.   

All of our staff strive to create a friendly environment, and WINZ subsidies are available to families who qualify.
