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.

After care runs from 3pm – 6pm

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.

Hello! My name is Alicia Alderson. I’ve been running Crofton Downs ASC and Mt. Cook Holiday Program since February 2019, previously having been at Khandallah school as Senior Leader. Before coming to New Zealand I taught German and Mathematics in the States as well as English as a second language in Austria. Crofton Downs is a small center with a big heart and we always have something fun going on.
