Serpentine Jarrahdale Before and After School Care

Located at the YMCA Serpentine Jarrahdale Community Recreation Centre this service provides care for up to 60 children every day.

Children can play, relax and even finish their homework in the safety of the YMCA’s before and after school care centres.

Supporting families and their children in a fun and stimulating environment is all part of our before and after school care that caters for children in Kindergarten through to Year 6.

Your children will be cared for in an environment where we take responsibility in helping school-aged children meet their emotional and educational needs.

They will hang out with their friends and meet new friends which will help develop the social skills that come from sharing a meal together or playing a game.
