Before & After School Care with YMCA
YMCA OSCAR programmes are much more than a child-minding service. They are recreation based, and the aim is to meet the needs of children in their out of school hours in a fun, safe and learning environment. Each child is a different, unique person in their own right. While they have commonalities, their uniqueness should be embraced and fostered. Their staff are more than happy to be approached with any questions or even just to take a peek at their new room! You will find the Centre Manager – Heidi and their Assistant Manager – Georgia in the room during both morning and after school sessions.
