My name is Heidi, I have been working at the YMCA for two and a half years but working with children for over ten. I was born and raised in the Upper Hutt community and have many community ties. I am a qualified swim instructor, hold ECE certificates and I am currently studying towards my degree in education. My goal is to build programmes that will help the next generation grow into strong, confident, empathetic individuals.
At Upper Hutt YMCA we believe children have the right to a range of experiences in a caring and supportive environment. We have a huge list of clubs that we offer throughout the year. Some of these include, cooking, craft, sports, wheels, gymnastic, dance and science clubs. As well as an everyday offer of different free play equipment. We also provide opportunities for special activities such as our famous annual talent show and parent nights! Our team is filled with people who are passionate about growing strong independent children and this is reflected the way we run our programme. Come take a visit you will not be disappointed!
