The kids programmes at The Y Auckland Mt Albert (formerly known as the YMCA) are more than just good fun – although we understand how important that is! We know how much parents love to see their kids enjoying themselves, but we also understand that you want them to grow and develop too.
Our kids programmes are specially designed to support your children’s coordination, core strength and motor skills – all important physical benefits as they grow. The kids programmes at Mt Albert Community and Leisure Centre managed by The Y also develop confidence, communication and social skills, all while your young ones are having a blast!
We offer a range of term and holiday programmes, as well as after school care for preschool and school-aged children. Adventure is waiting – bring your young ones along to our kids’ programmes in Mt Albert to see where they take them.
The Y provides a fun environment and ensures your child leaves safely from school while you manage your other commitments. Our 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 a healthy afternoon tea.
Our kids’ programmes are lots of fun – you can tell from the smiles and the energy! Did you know that they also contribute to your child’s physical and social development? The Y kids programmes are designed to develop coordination, motor skills, core strength, communication and social engagement – all vital to grow happy, healthy kids.
Send the kids on a new adventure everyday! While you keep working The Y will engage your kids with an exciting programme everyday with activities, games and day trips.
