Youthtown After School Programme

Our After School Programmes operate within key communities right across New Zealand, giving you convenience as well as peace of mind. Most of our After School Programmes are MSD (Ministry of Social Development) certified OSCAR Holiday Programmes. This means that if you’re eligible for a WINZ (Work and Income NZ) subsidy, you could pay from $4 a day.

Drop in for selected days or come for the whole term and let the highly qualified, Youthtown team support your child towards achieving their developmental goals.

Every After School programme is designed to build young peoples’ self-esteem and confidence through participation in an amazing choice of physical, creative and social activities and workshops.

The programmes are designed for specific age groups - have a look at the incredible experiences your primary, intermediate or secondary school child can have after school!

Primary School Students (Years 0-6)

Our primary school student Supervisors are carefully selected and trained, ensuring that not only are our 5 and 6 year olds feeling safe, settled and happy in their environment, but all of the primary school age group are benefiting from the Youthtown experience. Our fun, stimulating and structured activities are designed to support your child’s personal development.

In Youthtowns across the country, primary school students are having a great time bouncing, climbing, swimming, being fire fighters or pioneers, baking, creating, and a multitude of other activities. Then they get a say in what they might do next term!

Our Endorsements

'My sons have been attending Youthtown for the last 2.5 years.  They have thoroughly enjoyed the planned activities and found the staff to be both energetic and heaps of fun!  There were a number of occasions where I arrived early to pick the boys up and the response received were groans of disappointment as they wanted to stay longer.  This in my opinion is testament to Youthtown and the service they provide.  I would recommend Youthtown to anybody looking for an after school option and holiday school programme'
