Fun and Recreation for Children in Hamilton

Kids can’t get enough of us at The Y (formerly known as YMCA) Hamilton Recreation Centre!

We love spending time with kids, whether we are teaching them new things at our early learning centre, or keeping them busy at our holiday programmes or after school care centres. Whatever the case, we’re always focused on helping children grow and develop while having fun – we’re all about building strong kids.

At The Y Hamilton, our facilities cater for before and after school care, birthday parties, and exciting programmes throughout the term as well, meaning you can make sure the kids are well looked after whether you’re working through the holidays or just hitting the gym yourself.

Our Programmes include

Before & After School Care

The Y provides a fun environment and ensures your child leaves safely from school while you manage your other commitments. Our before and 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 afternoon tea.
