Before & After School Care

Children can play, relax and even finish their homework in the safety of the YMCA’s before and after school care centres.

Supporting families and their children in a fun and stimulating environment is all part of our before and after school care that caters for children in Kindergarten through to the age of 12.

Your children will be cared for in an environment where we take responsibility in helping school-aged children meet their emotional and educational needs.

They will hang out with their friends and meet new friends which will help develop the social skills that come from sharing a meal together or playing a game.
