COVID-19 update:


We are committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of all of our clients, residents and staff. In light of the latest Government guidance in relation to COVID-19, we would like to reassure you that we are working hard to keep our services going as far as we can.


Please see below for an update on our Childcare services: 


Our YMCA Childcare settings are now operating at their full hours again and we would like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone that has supported us throughout this difficult time.

As an organisation we continue to follow the Governments guidelines which include ensuring we maintain the highest safety and hygiene practices to prevent the spread of infection with Covid-19. We have considered our practice and have carried out thorough Risk Assessments and implemented new Operational Procedures in line with the Government Guidance to ensure that we provide the most effective measures to ensure the children and staff’s health and safety are met appropriately. Our Operational Procedures are under continual review as guidance changes.

After reviewing the latest Government guidelines and our site specific Operational Procedures, we have had to temporarily pause the running of our Breakfast and Afterschool clubs at YMCA Childcare St. Margaret’s Road, Lowestoft, and YMCA Childcare Exning Road, Newmarket. Once we feel we are able to operate the Breakfast and Afterschool clubs again we will contact our existing families to inform them.   

For our returning, new and prospective families, we understand that this is an anxious time for everyone, and you may have lots of questions about how we can care for your child safely. Please read our ‘Welcome back to YMCA Childcare’ booklet (568KB, PDF) to understand the safety measures we have put into place to protect our families and staff during this time. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your Childcare Manager, or email

We would like to thank you for your co-operation and understanding during these difficult times, it is greatly appreciated. And we are looking forward to welcoming you back.”


Amanda Spence – Childcare Programme Manager
