After-school Club

The Ofsted-registered YMCA Hawker After School Club collects children from two local schools – Fern Hill and St Agatha’s –  and caters for 4 to 11 year olds. Parents of children from other schools can also drop children off directly. With ample parking and on several bus routes, it is a popular choice for busy working parents. The centre has lots of indoor and outdoor space and offers a wide variety of creative and sporty activities. Facilities include: 

  • The Pod soft play
  • Tennis
  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Children’s outdoor play area

At After School Club we provide a variety of children’s activities that are always run to a high standard. The staff team are friendly, and take time to get to know every child in their care. We give the children the opportunity to express themselves and have fun in a safe and inclusive environment. The staff child ratio is 1:8 on regular days and 1:5 on trip days.

The Centre Is Inclusive Fitness Initiative accredited and so is accessible to all. We have well trained staff who are able to support and care for children with a range of different additional needs.

The feedback we get from parents is positive, with children and siblings using the club year after year.

“Our son started attending YMCA Hawker After School Club at the age 5.  Since then, his confidence has grown tremendously and he has learned lots of new skills, particularly the ability (and the desire) to play chess, cooking, etc.” – Laurence (Parent).

Breakfast Club

If your hectic schedule means you need childcare before school, then the Breakfast Club at YMCA Hawker may be just what you’re looking for. Open at 7.45am, the club is a safe, welcoming place for children aged 4 to 11 to play with friends, catch up with homework or relax before the day really gets going.

We serve up a healthy breakfast of toast, cereal and juice, before dropping off children at school.
