The Y NSW Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) services provide a safe and enriching place for children to have inspired minds and active bodies. Our experienced Educators design and deliver quality programs based on the nationally approved learning framework “My Time, Our Place”.
Our OSHC services for Before School, After School and Vacation Care are delivered across 54 sites in NSW, providing care for more than 10,000 children each year.
We are uncompromising in our commitment to child safety, both in practice and place. Our focus to see children and young people live their best lives sees us working across the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of children. At a Y OSHC, we ensure children are developing healthy habits and learn to love being active, which sees them develop new skills, social connection with others, a strengthened sense of belonging and improved holistic wellbeing.
We are accredited by the Australian Childhood Foundation as a child-safe organisation. The Y NSW is a benchmark organisation for best practice processes to keep children and young people safe and we value and respect parents as partners in the care and education of their children.
We have launched one of the first child safety models co-designed by more than 500 children and young people across the country. The “Stay Safe, Tell Someone” program was based off the responses of children aged 3-18 and helps guide how we share this information with young people.
For eligible families enrolled in our approved OSHC services, the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) will assist with reducing the out of pocket childcare costs for families.
