Open short days as schools close and on the 23rd and 24th December 2019 at Raureka and Taradale Primary schools.  Book on line or phone 06 8783027 for further details.

YMCA Hawke’s Bay is delighted to offer daily out of school care programmes in Hastings and Napier for children 5 – up to 14 years of age.  Daily activities include afternoon tea as well as time for children to complete homework, play games and sports, be creative with arts and crafts, bake and cook while being supervised and most importantly having fun.

Raureka Primary – After school care, between 3pm – 6pm.

Henry Hill Primary – After school care, between 3pm – 6pm.

Arthur Miller School – Before, 7.15am – 8.30am and after school care – 3pm – 6pm.

Taradale Primary School – Before, 7.15am – 8:30am and after school care – 3pm – 6pm.

We believe our programmes help kids develop physically, socially, creatively, emotionally, academically and culturally while simply playing and having fun in a safe, caring and supervised environment. It’s obvious from the smiles on their faces that our out of school programmes are fun for the children.

Pick-up service

We offer a pick-up service from a number of schools in Napier and Hastings and transport children to our  After School Care programmes.  Please check with us to see if your child’s school is within our pick up zone.

WINZ Assistance

All YMCA Hawke’s Bay programmes qualify for WINZ assistance and our customer service staff can work with you to define eligibility and possible level of support. The daily charge minus the WINZ contribution and any other related charges are regarded as the parent portion.

  • We are a registered charity and our terms of trade state that payments are to be in advance; one week before programme start date.
  • You are responsible for all bookings and agree to pay fees and deposits in advance or as they become due.
  • Failure to make payment under these terms may result in additional action which could include further charges and/or exclusion from services.
  • Please note no monies can be directly received at the programme sites.

We can assist in your completion of WINZ documentation if applicable. WINZ in some instances can assist with full care costs and applies for Before School, After School and Holiday Programmes up to the age of, but not including, 14.

You’re always welcome to pop in to our programme and talk with our supervisors.
