Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) – Provided by YMCA Ballarat

The OSHC team are set for another year of program packed fun at both Maddingley and Woodlea campuses.

Both programs support each students’ needs and interests and through the information provided from families on enrolment we are able to begin planning from each child’s first day of attendance. ‘My Time, Our Place’ Framework for School Age Care in Australia is the curriculum we implement, targeting five developmental outcomes; identity, community, well-being, learning and communication.

Our programs utilise indoor and outdoor spaces, along with a combination of flexible and structured components. Children are encouraged to make choices and decisions, approach new experiences with confidence while collaborating with peers and educators.

Age group: Prep to Year 6

After School Care Hours:  3.05pm – 6.30pm.

Vacation Care Hours (Operated at Woodlea campus only): 7.00am – 6.30pm.

Pupil free days: Running of the program is dependent on the number of bookings – families are encouraged to book early.

Set up your Xplor ID and Access Code

After you have set up your password, you have the option of creating an Xplor ID and Access Code.

The Xplor ID and access code is used to login to the Hub when you sign your child into the service as an alternative to scanning the QR Code with the Home App.
