The Y also offers the following services at the same location:

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.

Prices and subsidies

Daily program fee: $75.00*

*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.
