Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) – Provided by YMCA Ballarat
The YMCA Ballarat OSHC team are excited to now be offering engaging programs within 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.
Before School Care Hours – 6.30am – 8.30am
After School Care Hours – 3.05pm – 6.30pm
Vacation Care Hours – 7.00am – 6.30pm

Vacation Care Payment Options
GREAT NEWS!!! feedback from our families has been heard and we are SO excited to announce the introduction of the Direct Debit payment being available for all vacation care programs.
Eftpos will no longer be available at the Ballarat Office or in the services. We thank the many families who took the time to respond to vacation care surveys and communicated their preference for direct debit.
