About Outside School Hours Care
We offer a high quality service for children and families who require care out of school hours, both before and after school. 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. We are located at the schools venues. Our child-focused, stimulating activities reflect kids’ interests; nutritious snacks provided to fuel for learning and playing with friends, qualified staff ensure safe, nurturing, values-driven care. In addition to after school care, we also offer vacation care during school holidays.
During the afternoon 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.

Our educators pride themselves on the high level of supervision that is provided at our services and child protection is our highest priority. 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 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.
