Vacation Care at the Y NSW is available in a range of locations across NSW, including Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle and Broken Hill regions.
Our school holiday programs are jam-packed with activities designed to stimulate inquisitive minds, get children physically active and discover interests. Vacation Care allows your child to meet new friends and socialise with others of different ages and diverse backgrounds. Our activity-based programs are developed by qualified Educators who consider individual children's interests and needs and aim to provide a wide variety of experiences for all children to enjoy.
The Y NSW is committed to providing a fun, safe and nurturing environment for all children at all times.
Our school holiday care programs feature a range of the Y NSW location-based days, where our experienced educators provide the children with a range of activities within the centre, from physical challenges like obstacle courses and team sports to craft sessions that encourage creativity and imagination. We even offer science experiments and cooking experiences - perfect for budding young scientists or chefs! With so much variety on offer, your child will have a blast while making new friends and learning new skills.
We know that children thrive on excitement and adventure at the Y NSW Vacation Care programs. That's why we've designed incursion days that are both fun and educational, giving kids a chance to explore new ideas and experiences in a safe and supportive environment. From interactive science shows to creative arts workshops, there's always something exciting happening at Vacation Care. We believe that learning can be just as enjoyable as playtime, so our incursion days are carefully planned to engage young minds with hands-on activities and dynamic presentations.
We believe that every day can be an adventure! That's why we're always planning exciting excursions for our kids to enjoy. From visiting local zoos and museums to exploring nearby parks and beaches, there's never a dull moment with us. Our experienced staff members are dedicated to creating a safe and welcoming environment where children can learn, grow, and have fun together. Whether playing games at the playground or spotting wildlife on a nature walk, your kids are sure to create lasting memories during their time with us. Each excursion day is carefully planned with age-appropriate activities that promote learning, socialisation, and teamwork skills.
