The YMCA is the leading provider of early years and children’s activities in the south of England, including Gosport offering the perfect platform for your child’s growth.

We deliver our programmes to children in The YMCA Way, a unique approach that brings our mission and six values to life, supporting each child to develop individually.  The YMCA Way is underpinned by the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets, which explore the influences and actions that affect and support children’s development both within and outside of the family.

Our mission is to ‘champion and add value to young lives by providing experiences that challenge, enable and develop the individual.’ Our work in Gosport is primarily based around childcare:

  • YMCA Nursery Gosport – a welcoming nursery providing excellent quality childcare.  Located in the grounds of St Vincent College, the nursery offers a wide provision of care including full days, half days and sessional care.
  • Daycamps – in Portsmouth, we lead the way for school holiday camps and care throughout the year, covering independent and state schools.  Our Ofsted “outstanding” Daycamps at Fairthorne Manor are easily accessed in the main summer holidays via our convenient bus transport.
