Form for children catching bus from Tauranga Intermediate to Welcome Bay Tennis Club

Each programme offers a variety of activities that includes arts and crafts, sports and games and incorporates homework activities. We provide a safe environment for your child to relax in after their day at school while ensuring there are stimulating options for those still with energy.

We also organise activities between ASC centres and for the whole family such as YMCA Connecting Families Day, Live to Play month, and many more!

Every child is unique; our programmes allow for the diversity in age, sex, and background of each child while encompassing the individual needs and interests. Should you have any concerns about your child, or if your child has special requirements whether dietary or other, please take the time to discuss this with us. It is important that you notify us of any information we may need to know for your child to have the best experience possible.

So we provide After School Care (ASC) for kids aged 5-13 years.  Our programmes help them develop physically, socially, creatively, emotionally, academically and culturally while simply playing and having fun in a safe environment.  We offer a safe and supervised environment from 2:30 p.m. to 6p.m. with a staff to child ratio of 1:10 and a minimum of two staff at all times.
