Prepare. Unwind. Grow.
The Y provides before and after school care for over 7,000 children across NSW.
We create a fun, safe environment where children can make new friends and build confidence outside of the classroom.
Our experienced educators tailor programs for each child based using the My Time Our Place curriculum.
What happens in OSHC?
Every day is a different opportunity for children to learn something new! Our centres work with the My Time Our Place curriculum, which is an evidence based framework emphasising the benefits of providing children with a broad range of opportunities to participate in leisure and play-base activities. Depending on their interests, they may engage in:
• Arts & crafts
• Dance & music
• Leisure and more
Please note, quite space is provided for children who wish to use their time to complete homework, however educators are unable to offer individual help as they need to supervise all children.
What to bring
Children should bring a water bottle and all food required for the day. Children should also bring any personal items to support their individual care needs (e.g. medication or change of clothes).
Before and After School Care
Before School Care: We help children get ready for the school day by running quiet yet engaging activities. A nutritious breakfast is also served at no extra cost.
Before School Care starts at 7 am and runs through until 9 am.
After School Care: Once the school day is done, we help children wind down. We offer afternoon tea and mix of activities where children can socialise and broaden their horizons.
After School Care starts at 3 pm and runs through until 6 pm.
