About Us

Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) is operated by the YMCA and caters for children from Prep to Grade Nine (depending on age). You can attend YMCA OSHC as long as you are enrolled in a school and full within our age limits. 
OSHC runs 51 weeks of the year closing the Christmas to new year’s week and all public holidays. 

Our Team 

YMCA Grovely OSHC has a strong team of ten educators. Many of our casual team members are currently engaged in full time study in Education and bring a range of innovative ideas to our service each day. The team is led by myself as Coordinator. I have completed many different Diplomas such as a Diploma in Children’s Services and a Diploma in Youth Work and come from a strong background of working in primary schools in behaviour management, inclusion support, teacher aide and social work

Our Program 

Here at YMCA OSHC Grovely, We strive to plan and implement a program that supports children’s well-being, development and learning. We offer a range of areas for the children to learn in. Some of these areas are Imagination Station, Arts & Crafts, Cooking, Music & movement, Group learning, Spontaneous play, indoor play, outdoor play, loose parts play and more. All program ideas come from you! Yes you the parent/guardian, you the child, you the community, you the educator and you the school. We get these ideas through our observations, evaluation, suggestions and teachable moments. Our program plans and activities are aligned with the YMCA mission statement, YMCA Philosophy and our own service philosophy as well with the National Quality Framework ‘My Time Our Place’ educational principles to develop appropriate and engaging activities for children in our care. 

Vacation Care

Each day is unique with its own theme and range of fun activities to keep the kids entertained. We aim to create a holiday experience for all children through a range of activities including excursions, incursions and theme days.


YMCA OSHC respects and understand different cultures when it comes to food choices and will endeavour to provide alternatives wherever possible. We cater for all dietary needs.
Our service displays our menu weekly in the kitchen or on the Family Noticeboard. 
Families should feel free to share concerns or feedback regarding food and nutrition with the Coordinator.
