The Y (formerly YMCA) Out of School Care – kids love it! Brand new activities for 2022 designed to keep primary and intermediate-aged children engaged and active. But hey - let’s not forget the FUN part!
No term is going to be the same! Introducing FIVE fun-packed themes: Engineering Wonders, Cool Builders, Sporty Stars, Future Inventors & Super Artists; kids get to experience a range of 'all things cool' to explore, innovate, self discover, and just have an epic time!
For years The Y has provided a safe and secure environment, where kids can be and enjoy their out-of-school hours. We want to support every parent by not only being 'a convenient care service' but a safe haven where kids’ development is supported and learning is recognised.
YMCA North 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.
