Nurturing Vacation Care for School Aged Kids in Brisbane
The YMCA of Brisbane has developed their OSHC program after working closely with many schools, resulting in a school holiday care experience your children will be keen to return to. Their holistic approach and high-held values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility will give you the peace of mind that your school aged kids will be enjoying their school holidays in a nurturing environment. All of the staff you will encounter at YMCA OSHC centres are caring and experienced and are supported by comprehensive mentoring, training and encouragement initiatives to ensure the highest level of care.
Fun Activities in the School Holidays for Kids
Vacation Care with the YMCA is full of wonderful activities, trips and visitors that are guaranteed to make the holidays go quickly. Some of the activities undertaken include musical, dramatic, creative and culinary experiences, as well as indoor and outdoor events that can be enjoyed on an individual or a group basis. The holiday activity schedules are regularly altered and adjusted to suit the specific needs of the children attending each day, so that every child attending has a great time.
Holiday Care that is Close-to-home and Affordable
YMCA OSHC now has 32 centres in South-East Queensland, scattered throughout Brisbane, Ipswich and the Gold Coast. Located on school grounds, these facilities are convenient for families in the local area, but also welcome children from further afield. As the YMCA is a charity, vacation care in their OSHC program is affordable. The fees you pay are reinvested into the service to ensure that high quality toys and equipment are plentiful and nutritious meals that conform to the Smart Choices guidelines are provided for every child attending. For eligible families, additional rebates may apply through Family Assistance, as the YMCA OSHC program is a government approved childcare service. This means that, when coupled with the flexibility of choosing and paying only for the days your child will attend, your out-of-pocket expenses can be kept to a minimum.
With YMCA Outside School Hours Care, you can be assured of a safe, secure and clean environment for your children, run by honest, caring and experienced staff.
