After School Care

Fun, active, inner-city after school care

IMPORTANT: The last day of the Y Southland’s after school care service will be Friday 31 May, 2024. No bookings will be accepted after this date. If you wish to book up until then, please email

Our after school care programme is based at the Y (77 Tay Street) and we offer a pick up from school service.

The programme runs every weekday during term time, from 2.30pm until 6pm. We pick your kids up from school, bring them to the Y, ensure they have a nutritious afternoon tea, set up space for completing homework if needed, and organise and oversee a range of awesome activities so the kids can unwind and have fun!

Our after school care is MSD accredited, which means you may be eligible for childcare subsidies, and also means you can be assured that we operate with specific policies and procedures in place.

Programme hours

We have a staff member onsite from 2.30pm, and our programme runs from 3pm (or whenever kids arrive from school) until 6pm, Monday to Friday.

We do not operate on public holidays.

All food provided

We provide a daily afternoon tea, included in the price, and cater to dietary requirements.


We have a daily rate of $23. This includes pick up from school in our Y vans, afternoon tea, and all of the awesome activities we have on offer such as arts, crafts, climbing and bouldering, stadium games, dance, sports, board games, dance parties and so much more!

Policies and procedures

You are welcome to view our policies and procedures by calling into the Y or contacting our Y Juniors Manager. We review a set of policies and procedures each month, to ensure we are operating within best practice guidelines.
