OSCAR – Before and After School Care


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, cook – and are professionally supervised and 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, 7.30am – 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, professionally 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 daily from a number of schools to our Napier and Hastings After School Care programmes please check with us to see if your school is part of the service, a fee per day per child may apply*
