YMCA Adelaide North OSHC provides Vacation Care (school holiday care) for children aged 5 to 17 years with intellectual disabilities. We offer a wide range of supervised, fun-filled activities on site as well as excursions and incursions between 8am and 6pm during school holidays.
What to Expect at YMCA OSHC
As a community-based not-for-profit, the Y is recognised as a leading provider of OSHC services in South Australia, well known for:
We seek high quality, experienced and passionate Educators which actively contribute to the quality of OSHC programming and an enjoyable experience for students. Lead by the OSHC Director, Educators provide an environment that will challenge, stimulate and support each child on an individual level.
Bookings can be completed online, on the App or over the phone. In addition to utilising the latest technology to manage bookings, our friendly OSHC Support Team is available over the phone Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm.
YMCA OSHC has the right mix of physical activity, intellectual stimulation and rest keeping kids wanting to come back. We also pride ourselves in delivering the best Vacation Care program in South Australia.
We source our food from within the local community using markets and other local food co-ops if available within the area. Healthy and nutritious breakfasts, snack and afternoon tea are always available for students.
Before your child can be booked into, or attend, any Vacation Care sessions they must be enrolled into the ANSS OSHC service.
Service enrollment is only needed once; there is no need to repeat a service enrolment for subsequent terms/years.
Our Vacation Care programs encourage children to be involved in a variety of fun and exciting activities, including art, craft, cooking, sport, dance and drama. Children also go on excursions to exciting destinations.
The quickest and easiest way to book Vacation Care sessions is through the Xplor Home App. However to use the app, you must already be enroled in the service (see Enrolment Section on this page if not) and have an activated Xplor account (email the OSHC Support Team if you need the activation email resent).
