YMCA OSHC – Proud supporters of P&Cs Qld – We are here to help
Does your school have an existing OSHC or do you think your school would benefit from an OSHC? We can assist with information to support your P&C run OSHC, provide software to help you with ongoing compliance, auditing and regulations or talk with you about the benefits of a YMCA run OSHC (which include decreased stress to concentrate on fundraising endeavours and other P&C lead initiatives at your school, and additional revenue from YMCA OSHC’s co-contribution back to your school).
Our programs and activities are aligned with the YMCA mission – to provide opportunities for children to grow in body, mind and spirit – underpinned by our values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility. We blend this philosophy with the National Quality Framework ‘My Time Our Place’ educational principles to develop appropriate and engaging activities for children in our care.
YMCA OSHC teams are committed in developing programs and activities tailored to individual student needs, the needs of your school, your community and socio economic and cultural demographics. We are great at what we do, and we are here to help YOU! Contact us today for a chat – call Jason on 0400 760 582.
