After School Care (OSCAR)


YMCA is the largest provider of OSCAR programmes in New Zealand. We provide a service that is affordable and convenient for parents and which is safe and fun for the children. We do a large amount of recreation, as well as helping with everything from homework to art and sport. Children have access to our huge recreational facilities on site, including basketball courts, playing fields, and to our swimming pool during the summer. We have dedicated staff and we offer unique opportunities to try different activities on our ‘clubs’ days ranging from music, dance, Te Reo, science, arts and crafts and gardening club.

The YMCA’s programme can arrange transport for children from their school. Transport to and from your child’s after school activities can be arranged as part of the programme.
