Activity types, prices and subsidies
YMCA School Holiday Program runs three types of activity days, which include:
- In house: activities run by our Educator Team;
- Incursion: activities run by visitors to our service;
- Excursion: activities run at an off-site location.
Each activity day incurs a separate cost that is confirmed prior to each holidays when bookings are opened.
Program tables are available to view under the ‘Next program’ section, prior to the start of each school holiday. These detail the daily activities types and associated fees.
Fees listed on program tables are not inclusive of any Child Care Subsidy (CCS) entitlements, which may reduce your out-of-pocket expense.
Our programs operate on a fortnightly debit cycle, which withdraws payment for the next two weeks of care your family has booked.
If you book an additional day of care during our School Holiday Program, your account will be back charged in the following debit cycle.
