The YMCA is the leading provider of early years and children’s activities in the south of England, including Southampton offering the perfect platform for your child’s growth.
We deliver our programmes to children in Southampton 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 services for children in the city of Southampton:
- Nurseries in Woolston, Townhill and Weston Park giving children the best start in life.
- Pre-schools in Newtown and Millbrook for those next steps in a child’s development.
- Children’s Birthday Parties at our Newtown pre-school setting.
- Daycamps – leading the way for school holiday fun year round at Oasis Academy Mayfield in Sholing and YMCA Townhill. Our Fairthorne Manor Daycamps near Botley are also well served by our bus transport options in the main summer holidays.
- Breakfast & After School Club – a valuable service serving parents and the community at Weston Park Infant School
