YMCA Y-kidz are proud to be part of the Holiday Activities and Food programme during winter 2022. On 8 November 2020, the government announced that the holiday activities and food programme will be expanded across the whole of England in 2021 and continuing into 2022. The programme has provided healthy food and enriching activities to children since 2018.

This holiday provision is free for children who receive benefits-related free school meals. Our expert staff will be running fun, active and inclusive clubs at Landau Forte Academy Moorhead, St Alkmunds Church and YMCA Campus London Road from the 4th of January to the 7th of January 2022. Your child must sign up for all 4 days.

YMCA Y-Kidz provides age-appropriate, meaningful and exciting play opportunities. We offer a range of fun activities including arts and crafts, sports and games, performing arts, food decoration, soft-play, treasure hunts, talent shows and much more. We make sure each child is up on their feet, getting stuck in and using lots of energy. We also encourage children/young people to become group leaders – improving communication, confidence and self-esteem.

We give special consideration at all times to safety and welfare. Our team is highly qualified in a range of childcare specialisms, with years of experience in providing diverse, quality play opportunities in a stimulating environment. We ensure an inclusive environment irrespective of ability, race, culture, religion and social and economic circumstances. We promote physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and educational development through play.
