The Y is a community, not-for-profit organisation focused on family, healthy living, developing young people and those less fortunate. This focus is at the heart of our Before and After School Care and Vacation Care services, to benefit all children, families and schools. Our profits go back into our services.

Family:

Through our OSHC services, the Y strengthens school communities by bringing families together and creating a “home away from home” for children where they can be themselves and feel supported in everything they do. Through events such as Family Fun Nights, families can engage and form friendships within the broader school community.


Healthy Living:

Health and nutrition is a major focus of the Y's Before and After School Care and Vacation Care services. We actively encourage and promote the health and wellbeing of the children in our care by providing nutritious, culturally-diverse meals prepared onsite by our staff and chosen to suit the individual service and children's needs. We also provide another avenue for children to play sport and be active outside school hours, which not only improves their physical health but develops social skills, coordination and confidence.


Developing Young People:

Everyday at the Y, we are developing important skills in our children to see them reach their full potential in life. The Y complements those skills children learn in school, through various programs offered through our Before and After School Care and Vacation Care services. For instance, leadership skills are developed through our Mentors Program and Leaders in Training Program. The Y also assists families with care for children with additional needs through the Inclusion Support Scheme and Flexible Respite.


Those Less Fortunate:

The Y believes access to affordable child care is a right, not a privilege, and offers financial support to families through our Open Doors Program. We can also assist with the purchasing of school uniforms and the cost of camps, easing the financial burden on schools. Did you know the Y is also a charity? Find out more about how we help those in need. More than just child care: Find out how your school can partner with the Y for school camps and PE services. Our diverse programming also spans health and fitness, aquatics, gymnastics, sport competitions and more.
