Safeguarding our tamariki

For years The Y has provided a safe and secure environment, where kids can just be’ and enjoy their time with us. We want to support every parent by not only being a fun programme, but also a safe haven where kids’ development is supported and learning is recognised.

The Y is Aotearoa’s first and only accredited organisation through the Australian Childhood Foundation (ACF). We are proud to lead the children’s workforce as a child-safe organisation. Find out more.

Our super fun zones: Engineering Wonders, Cool Builders, Future Inventors, Sporty Stars, & Super Artists; change throughout the term, so there's always something new and inspiring!
