Welcome to Y-Kids Johnsonville! My name is Gavi – the programme Coordinator and here is where I exclusively offer my care to the community. I am committed to seeing and working alongside children is perfectly handled with the utmost care it deserves. With over 10 years of experience as an Early Childhood teacher, I believe that learning takes place in a safe and healthy environment where children develop individually to their maximum potential. My exceptional service will address the well-being of tamariki who is in our care and its parents and the community needs in a most precious way.
YMCA Out of School Care is 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. While they have commonalities, their uniqueness should be embraced and fostered.
Each programme offers a variety of activities that may include arts and crafts, sports and games and some incorporate 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.
Every child is unique; our programmes allow for the diversity in age, gender, 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 your centre manager. It is important that you notify us of any information we may need to know to ascertain the suitability of our programme to meet your child’s needs and for your child to have the best experience possible.
The four values of the YMCA are Caring, Respect, Honesty, and Responsibility. They are the foundation of building strong kids, strong families, and strong communities. They are how we ‘make a difference’.
