Inclusion

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. Find out more about inclusion at YMCA Children's Programs.

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.

 

Debit process

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.
