As a children’s charity part of our mission is to add value to young lives, but we don’t stop there.
One of our many achievements over the last 5 years is the value we have also added to family life, through the provision of clubs, camps and activities for the whole family to enjoy. Over the next 5 years, one of our aims is to increase the number of interactions we have with families, so we will continue to grow and develop these schemes offering exciting and varied family activities. In Southampton, we offer the following services:
- Parent & Infant Service – supporting parents of the under 5s attending one of our nurseries, providing opportunities to talk through any concerns or difficulties that they may be experiencing.
- YMCA nurseries in Woolston, Townhill and Weston Park giving children the best start in life.
- YMCA pre-schools in Townhill and Newtown for those next steps in a child’s development.
- Daycamps – leading the way for school holiday camps and care throughout the year at Oasis Academy Mayfield in Sholing, Newtown Pre-school and Townhill Nursery.
- Breakfast & After School Club – a valuable service serving parents and the community at Weston Park Infant School
