About Us

YMCA OSCAR programmes are 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 in their own right. While they have commonalities, their uniqueness should be embraced and fostered.

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.

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

Bookings are essential as we need to know who is attending on a daily basis. Payments can be made via internet banking Please contact the YMCA providing the service for registration. All of our programmes are CYF approved to operating OSCAR standards. For you this means your child participates in a nationally approved programme and, should your family qualify, enables you to receive a Work and Income subsidy.

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’.

Our programme staff are fully trained, and we work with staff ratios of 1:10 with a minimum of two staff on site at all times.

Know My World – Mt Cook After School Care

Know My World – American exchange with Middle Kerr School project

Mount Cook YMCA After School care have been very busy writing letters, making videos and preparing some Kiwiana goods to send to our Know My World exchange partners at Middle Kerr School in Texas, America.

The exchange has involved us receiving t-shirts from the school, seeing neat videos they have sent, comparing our cultural differences and similarities and making some awesome friends!

Mount Cook YMCA firstly made a stop motion video to send to our friends over in Texas, this involved making things out of clay, cutting out words and letters, script writing, set design, acting and filming.  We are having so much fun on our exchange and can’t wait to find out more about the American Culture!
