Welcome to Craigmore South OSHC

Our OSHC and children's community service programs are designed to impart positive values and partnerships within the wider community. We provide a safe, nurturing environment where your children can develop social skills, learn through play and build personal skills  that assist them in becoming positive, healthy young people who reach their full potential.

YMCA South Australia is licenced as an approved childcare services provider and all our Out of School Hours Care are licenced and compliant with the National Quality Framework (NQF).

The National Quality Framework (NQF) for Early Childhood Education and Care Services was introduced in January 2012, as an important reform in the child care industry. It was designed to ensure the delivery of a higher standard of care for children in Australia and it covers seven Quality areas including education, development and health and safety. It also provides comprehensive information for families about services for their children.

We have provided both internal and external training for staff in relation to the NQF, National Standards,My Time Our Place and Quality Improvement Plans. We are committed to providing ongoing training for all staff to ensure continuous professional growth that is reflected in the quality of care being provided to children and families.

We have also reviewed our key policies to be in-line with compliance to the National Regulations. We have also ensured all our programs incorporate the school aged care framework: My Time Our Place and the National Quality Standards, so that  we are providing the highest quality care within our services

We provide activities promoting positive, healthy children with a non-biased focus. While children are playing they have opportunities to:

  • Learn new skills and interests
  • Develop guiding values to help them make healthy life choices through interactions with other children and staff
  • Participate in a supportive, caring and encouraging environment
  • Contribute their ideas and opinions to the program in ways that are valued and respected
  • Build self confidence, a positive identity and social skills

Activities include:

  • Physical activities that develop fitness, coordination and sportsmanship
  • Healthy eating and cooking that teach valuable life skills
  • Creative art projects that develop an appreciation of different cultures
  • Music, dance and drama experiences that help children to express themselves
  • School Holiday Activities in Adelaide Central and various trips to regional areas.
