Before and After School Care   School Holiday Programs

Our OSHC educators follow the My Time, Our Place framework for school-aged children.

The Y also runs a High Intensity Outside School Hours Care Initiative based at Kangaroo Flats in Bendigo. This program enables children with disabilities to access quality OSHC services for free.

OSHC activities

Our activities are designed to help your children discover and explore the world around them. Delivered by experienced OSHC educators, our activities use best-practice methods to support your child's learning and development. We'll also work with you to understand your child and help them reach their full potential — because you know your child best.

So what do children get up to at out of school hours care?

From helping your child understand the importance of healthy living to building their confidence through creative and expressive arts, we deliver a range of enjoyable activities such as:

  • arts and crafts;
  • board games and puzzles;
  • bowling;
  • cooking;
  • drama, singing and dancing;
  • gardening and recycling;
  • homework time;
  • sports, ball games and team games;
  • themed incursions and exciting excursions.
