  • No enrolment fees or hidden costs for families as well as an all-inclusive daily Vacation Care fee to ensure every child can attend the planned incursions or excursions.
  • Health and Safety is one of our top priorities – We ensure the following is strictly adhered to
    • Risk management procedures, which include risk assessments for excursions and incursions.
    • Supervision and transport procedures that include roll calls and head counts every 15 minutes.
    • Health and Safety Advisor visits to excursions sites
    • Our teams are regularly audited to ensure compliance with these procedures. 
  • Our unique Approach to Learning – Using evidence based informed practice, our Educators program experiences and activities based on the children’s interests to stimulate and encourage spontaneity and curiosity. 
  • Our fees to families are competitively balanced to accommodate market rates and ensure a sustainable service.

But don’t just take our word for it – read what some of your peers are saying about our OSHC services…

"I would highly recommend the Y, their level of care is very high and the warmth that comes out of the Y staff is just brilliant. One strong advantage of having the Y here onsite at St Denis is that we’ve actually picked up numbers in the school, some parents have come here because of the before and after school care”.

Eugene Lee, St Denis School Principal (2019)


Parents tell us what they think…

  • The team are exceptional - always friendly and caring towards the children. My two children, aged 6 and 9, have been attending for 4 years now and are always happy when I pick them up from after school care or vacation care.
  • My children really enjoy going to YMCA OSHC. The staff are friendly and fun and really take an interest in each child. There is such a great variety of activities on offer in the holidays and plenty to do after school, so they don’t get bored.
