Choosing the right early learning centre is one of the most important decisions you can make for your children.
YMCA operates five early learning centres in Auckland and Hamilton. YMCA's early childhood centres are fully licensed, regularly audited by the Ministry of Education and staffed by fully qualified teachers.
All YMCA early childhood centres have a philosophy unique to the community that they operate in but no matter which centre you visit parents can be sure teachers will work closely with parents to understand their aspirations and expectations and deliver them collaboratively with regular feedback and reporting.
YMCA's approach is based on the holistic wellbeing and development ensuring that children grow socially, mentally and physically.
YMCA's education programme is based on standards set by the Ministry of Education with a wide range of activities from arts and crafts to games incorporated to provide a stimulating and challenging programme.
The teachers and children create a multicultural atmosphere where everyone is welcome to participate in our values based environment.
