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

We provide the following nursery services in the city:

  • YMCA Nursery Portsea – a welcoming nursery for children aged 4 months to 5 years.
  • YMCA Nursery Whale Island –  excellent quality nursery childcare for Service families, Whale Island personnel and the local community in the grounds of HMS Excellent.

Once children have progressed through our nursery, the next step in their development is provided at our popular Daycamp programme at Charter Academy Community Sports Centre for children aged 4-16 years.
