Joan Watters Before and After School Hours Care

The service runs from the Community Centre beside Wembley Primary School and provides a walking pick up run. We provide care for up to 41 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 the age of 12.

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.

Above and Beyond

Don’t want your kids to miss out? Neither do we! If your children are at a school-based centre and want to take part in out-of-hours activities being held on school grounds, our staff will gladly escort them and return them to the YMCA centre afterwards.

Our staff love hanging out with your kids and enjoy being a part of their lives. So much so they will walk new or shy kids to their classrooms or even attend an assembly to watch children receive merit awards. They are also so engaged in the community that they regularly offer their help at school sports carnivals.

We send out a newsletter at the end of each term to their families to keep them up-to-date with what is happening at the centre and in their local community.

Testimonials

  • I am so thrilled I decided to move Jack from his old OSHC Care to YMCA Wembley. Now he gets grumpy with me when he's not going to out of school care! I really love the staff, they are great with communication and very helpful, and they obviously love spending time with kids. The only hassle I have now is getting him out of there and in the car to go home. - Claire
