About Y-Kids After School Club

Y-Kids After School Clubs in Redhill and Reigate offer fun activities for 4*-12 year olds in a safe and welcoming environment. We provide affordable, quality childcare for working parents and encourage and support children’s physical, intellectual, social and emotional development.

* Children aged 4 must be in full-time education to attend Y-Kids After School Club.

How it works

Children are collected from school by YMCA staff and driven to the YMCA Sports and Community Centre in Redhill or YMCA Sovereign Centre in Reigate (see list of local schools below). On arrival, children are given a healthy snack and then get the chance to enjoy structured sessions of sports, cookery, arts and crafts or can just relax and hang out with friends. A homework area is also available.

Our qualified playleaders deliver lively and interesting activities and encourage each child to participate and to try new things. 

Children who attend Y-Kids After School Club can also book on to our term-time activities, allowing them to learn and develop new sporting skills, such as football, trampolining and gymnastics

Local School Pick-ups

Our supervised minibus collects children from eight local schools:

  • Dover’s Green Infant School – YMCA Sovereign Centre, Reigate
  • Earlswood Infant School – YMCA Sports & Community Centre, Redhill
  • Earlswood Junior School – YMCA Sports & Community Centre, Redhill
  • Lime Tree Primary School – YMCA Sovereign Centre, Reigate
  • St Matthew’s Primary School – YMCA Sovereign Centre, Reigate
  • St John’s Primary School – YMCA Sovereign Centre, Reigate
  • St Joseph’s Primary School – YMCA Sovereign Centre, Reigate
  • Sandcross Infant and Junior School – YMCA Sovereign Centre, Reigate

If we do not collect from your child’s school it does not mean that they to miss out – if you can get them to the YMCA, they can play at the YMCA!

New venue – YMCA Sovereign Centre, Reigate

As you may be aware, we are developing our outside sports pitch at the YMCA Sports & Community Centre into a new Inclusive Sports Facility. We expect building work to start in the New Year. This extension will allow us to increase our sporting activities for all, including those with disabilities.

In order to accommodate this development and the growing number of children attending Y-Kids After School Club, we will run the club from two YMCA sites starting January 2018.

Children who attend Earlswood Infant and Junior schools will continue to come to the YMCA Sports & Community Centre in Princes Road, Redhill. As the only school onsite, the children will have more space upstairs to enjoy active games and sports as well as a range of crafts. We will also still have a quiet area for children in Reception and Year One.

Children who attend St Joseph’s, St John’s, St Matthew’s, Lime Tree, Dover’s Green and Sandcross schools will go to the YMCA Sovereign Centre on Slipshatch Road, Reigate. This is a dedicated centre for children with excellent facilities including a main activity room where children can enjoy games and crafts, as well as an outside play area and sports pitch.
