YMCA School Holiday Programmes

We run fun, active and social holiday programmes that your child will love!

We cater for all school ages, so it's easy for you to continue your day-to-day routines throughout the year. Our Holiday Programmes are the perfect way for your kids to get out and about during the holidays and are a great way for kids to make new friends.

  • Each day we run a different schedule so there's lots of variety to keep your kids occupied
  • We offer a balanced mix of fun and exciting off-site trips and a range of on-site activities
  • We don't include screen time in our schedules
  • Our philosophy focuses on active play
  • Our friendly staff are fully qualified and trained
  • For those with busy schedules we also provide extended hours care

WINZ Subsidies Available

Do you need a helping hand to send your kids on our programmes these holidays? We believe there should be no barrier for children to participate in our programmes, so WINZ subsidies are available to approved families.

Safe children are our priority

All of our teachers are fully qualified and must complete ongoing Safeguarding training. YMCA is New Zealand's first child-safe accredited organisation and we are proud to reflect this in all that we do. 

YMCA is also Ministry of Social Development accredited so you can be sure your Tamariki are well cared for.
