YMCA Before and After School Care

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

YMCA  Before and After School Care programmes offer a variety of active activities to keep your kids occupied after school whilst you manage your other commitments.

We understand that it’s hard for parents to leave their kids in other people’s care, that’s why we provide a fun, friendly and supervised environment so you can rest easy knowing that your child is safe and happy.

And we know how quickly kids get hungry so we also provide healthy breakfasts and afternoon tea.

Our activities include:

  • Art and crafts
  • Cooking
  • Sports and games
  • Free play 
  • Supervised homework sessions

We believe every family should have the same opportunities so WINZ subsidies are available to families who qualify.

YMCA offers out of school care in the following locations:
