After School Care

OSCAR Before and After School Care

Since 2011, the YMCA have delivered the Before and After School Care programmes at Stanhope Road School. Our programme is based at the school hall and provides a fun, safe environment for children 5-13 years old while parents manage other commitments. We offer a variety of activities including arts and crafts, cooking, science, sports and games as well as areas set up for quiet time with a chill out zone. We offer breakfast for children in the Before School Care programme and afternoon tea for those in After School Care.

Child Safety

The welfare of children and young people is paramount to our work and at the heart of everything we do. We are proud to lead the children’s workforce as a child-safe organisation. YMCA North has taken a proactive step in committing to child safety by becoming Aotearoa’s first and only Safeguarding Children Accredited organisation through the internationally-renowned Australian Childhood Foundation (ACF).
