In line with the Government’s recent announcements and guidance, Y-Kids After School Club has reopened with reduced numbers for the Autumn term.

As we are sure you will understand, we have had to make a few changes to the delivery of Y-Kids After School Club, in order to keep everyone safe as possible and to act within current local and national Government guidance.

Each child will be placed in a group associated with their school. Due to this and levels of demand, for the time being, we will only be accepting bookings from the following schools:

YMCA Sports and Community Centre: Earlswood Infants and Juniors

YMCA Sovereign Centre: Dovers Green and Sandcross 

We understand this may be disappointing to some families, but please be assured that we will be continually reviewing bookings and levels of demand, to explore ways which we may be able to accommodate children from other schools.

Our team of highly qualified and friendly staff ensure that children have a time to remember. All staff undertake an enhanced DBS check.

We will be using the coming weeks to provide further training to staff in safe working procedures, and preparing the setting at Y-Kids After School Club, including implementing new hygiene measures. These operational plans are underpinned by a full Y-Kids After School Club Risk Assessment which will be reviewed by the YMCA’s Leadership Team.

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 attending school in Reception class to attend Y-Kids After School Club.

We are proud to be an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted registered site. Registration no 122628

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
