We embrace the National Quality framework, and ensure that this is reflected throughout our Centre, as we strive to continually offer high quality care and education. Our programs reflect the principles, practices and learning where children's interests and strengths are used to guide the curriculum, and promote further learning.
All employees at YMCA have participated in the Safeguarding Children program; have undergone Working with Children, and Police checks. They have a very good understanding of their obligations around child protection, and keeping children safe. Our educators are highly committed, and all hold, or are working towards, qualifications in the early childhood care and education profession. Our educators' ongoing professional development is paramount to our service, and is always promoted and supported by the YMCA.
All bookings for our childcare services including school holiday programs can be made online through My Family Lounge -

Our services are approved by the Federal Government, and are therefore subsidised through the Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate schemes, helping families with the cost of care.

Outside Hours School Care
We offer high quality services for children and families who require care after school located on the schools' grounds.
We work in close partnerships with families to ensure that the individual needs of our children are met. Our programs are guided by the Framework for School Age Care in Australia – My Time Our Place; and our practices are all guided by the National Quality Standard for School Age Care.
YMCA Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) is a home-away-from-home for children aged
Preschool through to
12 years – a place to have fun, be active and explore their potential. Our child-focused, stimulating activities reflect the children's interests; we provide nutritious snacks, giving the children the energy for learning and playing with friends, and gaining lifelong skills and knowledge.
During the after school care children are offered a nutritious afternoon tea, the opportunity to complete any homework and join in on a range of age appropriate activities until parents collect them. Educators work closely with children to develop a program that is based on their interests and skill level.
