Crofton Downs ASC

Nestled in the hills above Wellington sits the sleepy little suburb of Crofton Downs. At its heart is the Crofton Downs Primary school where the (anything but sleepy!) YMCA After School Care centre is based. We offer a varied programme of fun, creative and physical play interlaced with the core YMCA values of Honesty, Respect, Caring and Responsibility. We hope to see you there soon! We encourage new parents to visit our site prior to their first day. To organise a site visit please contact us directly.

Hi there! I am Peter Tooley, and I have been the Centre Manager at Crofton Downs for the past year. I really enjoy the variety of my work and the joy children get from partaking in activities I have helped to facilitate. I have previously been the Senior Leader for the Khandallah After School Care centre, as well as a myriad of other leadership roles in my career. I am also a father to a delightful one year old named Maxwell, who, due to the part-time nature of my role, I am able to spend lots of time with him each morning.
