YMCA Springfield Lakes Community Centre Lines Up On-Site School Holiday Activities

Did you know that YMCA Springfield Lakes Community Centre on Springfield Lakes Boulevard has some fun and enriching on-site activities for children for this school holiday? School might be out for the next two weeks following Easter but that doesn’t mean they have to stop learning or interacting socially.

To keep the children occupied and to help them discover new skills to nurture their development, YMCA Springfield Lakes Community Centre has prepared heaps of daily sessions for children between three to 12 years old.

The program will take place from 6 to 16 April 2021, between 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only one adult is allowed to accompany per child. Participants are also expected to observe protocols like sanitizing, proper hygiene and social distancing. 

If a child or a parent feels unwell or has symptoms of the cold or flu, it’s highly recommended that they sit this one out and forfeit their booking. They may, however, transfer their registration to someone else in case they won’t be able to use it.
