Here at the Y, we understand the value of high-quality Outside Schools Hours Care, which is why our experienced Educators are dedicated to providing a safe and stimulating environment for children in our care. Our Carlingford West OSHC service will be a place where children can learn, engage in interactive activities, make friends and have fun.
As an organisation that believes in the power of inspired young people, the Y NSW is committed to maintaining the highest standards of child safeguarding. By providing a safe space for children, we can support them to live their best lives.

What happens in Outside School Hours Care (OSHC)?
Every day is a different opportunity for children to learn something new! Our experienced Educators tailor programs for each child’s interests and ideas using the My Time Our Place framework. This nationally approved evidence-based framework emphasises the benefits of providing children with a broad range of opportunities to participate in a variety of leisure and play-based activities.
Depending on their interests, they may engage in:
Please note quiet 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.
We understand that an organised and well-resourced environment promotes individual and collaborative play and development. We ensure thoughtful and sufficient play resources and equipment are provided for a range of activities and programs, fostering holistic and varied education and care experiences for the children.
What should my child bring to OSHC?
Children should bring a hat and a water bottle. Food is optional as breakfast and afternoon tea are provided within specific times. Children should also bring any personal items to support their individual care needs (e.g. medication or change of clothes).
How can I enrol my child/children?
Will current staff continue under the Y NSW’s management?
