YMCA After School Club aims to provide a safe, secure, stimulating and child-centred environment for primary school aged children, at an affordable cost for parents.

YMCA After School Club offers a range of activities from arts & crafts, baking, sports, games, outdoor play and outings. A healthy snack is also provided every day.

YMCA After School Club runs from 2pm until 5.45pm from Monday to Friday during term-time. We also provide a Holiday Club during school holidays, which runs daily from 8.30am to 5.45pm

YMCA After School Club operates in two locations, one in central Bangor, in the YMCA’s premises on High Street, and one in Rathmore at West Church. We collect pupils from Bangor Central IPS, Ballyholme Primary School and Rathmore Primary School at no extra cost.

All our settings are conveniently located, fully accessible and well equipped, and registered with SEHSCT Early Years for up to 30 children. Whilst there are no outdoor play areas on-site, the Clubs makes full use of local outdoor areas, such as Ward Park, Pickie Park and Ballyholme beach.

My children absolutely love their After School Club. Jess and Fran who run it are amazing, so friendly and caring. My children are never bored and there is always something new to do. They would go everyday if they could! From a parent’s point of view, knowing your kids are happy, safe and having lots of fun from the minute they are picked up, until home time, is the best feeling and it’s worth every penny!

I asked my child what he would give YMCA After School Club out of ten – he said 1000! High praise indeed.

I regularly get told off by my daughter for collecting her too early! What a good sign. The girls are all fab – well done, YMCA!
