If your child needs quality care during school holidays, is between five and 12 years old, and enrolled in primary school – they will love YMCA School Holiday Programs!
We're proud to support local Trafalgar families with our YMCA School Holiday Program based at Trafalgar Primary School.
Our Summer School Holiday Program will run between the end of Term 4 2021 and the start Term 1 2022. The program’s start date will vary at each location depending on the requirements of the primary schools.
Therefore, only selected locations will be running in the week leading up to Christmas (Saturday 25 December) and they will then take a break until Monday 3 January.
The program will return in full at all participating locations on Tuesday 4 January and run until Friday 28 January. The program will not operate on the Tuesday 26 January Public Holiday.
In November we will release a full list of operating days and activities for each location so you will know when your local program is running.
Returning families will receive an email notification when the program details are released.

To accommodate our families, we offer YMCA School Holiday Programs between 06:30 and 18:00 during the holidays (see the 'Next program' section above for dates).

We believe in an inclusive society for all children and families. Children with additional needs are welcome to attend our program. Families must contact the OSHC Coordinator at least four weeks prior to the holiday program to discuss the individual needs of your child and complete any funding applications.

Prices and subsidies
Daily program fee: $65.00*
*Please note, this fee is for in house School Holiday Programs. Different fees are set for each day, depending on whether it is a headquarters, incursion or excursion day. A list of fees for each holiday program will be confirmed prior to the holiday program start date (here on our website, or in hard copy at the centre).
Our programs qualify for the Federal Government's Child Care Subsidy. The Child Care Subsidy helps eligible families access approved and registered child care providers, by partially subsidising the cost of daily fees. Please note, the prices above do not include any child care subsidy you may be entitled to, which could significantly 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.
Visit our debit process page for a list of forthcoming debit dates.
