We are pleased to confirm that Y-Kids After School Club in Redhill remains open following the recent Government announcement on 31 October.

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:

Earlswood Infants – Group 1
Earlswood Juniors – Group 2 (Years 3 & 4)
Earlswood Juniors – Group 3 (Years 5 & 6)

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.

All staff have been trained 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 Club in Redhill offers 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.
