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.
Everyday is a different opportunity for kids to learn something new! Depending on their age and interests they will engage in:
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 6:00 am and runs through until 8:30 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 3:00 pm and runs through until 6:00 pm.
The staff are always friendly and nice. The place is well organised and clean

My son was a little hesitant about attending OSHC initially but within a day or two he commented on the new friends he had made. Over the past 2 years that he has been attending, his circle of friends has grown significantly. He has grown his interest in reading by utilising the reading corner at the Centre and has learned how to play chess! The carers are incredibly warm and friendly for the children and parents alike, yet are also extremely professional in their handling of any minor disputes between the children. I would have no hesitation in recommending the OSHC centre at Padstow Park to other families and look forward to my daughter being cared for by the lovely team in 2020.
