Speci​​al Education OHSC at Palmerston Senior College:

Here at the Special Education Centre (SEC), located at Palmerston Senior College, we have children from the ages of five years old to fourteen years of age. All children are assessed as high support needs.​

We are​ an organisation designed specially to meet the needs of the children in our community so parents and/or care givers can work while their children are well looked after and safe.

We provide after school care and Vacation Care at our Centre in Palmerston.

We plan our days around meeting the children's needs as well as contributing to their everyday learning and life skills.

Our goal is to encourage these young people to get involved with learning while having fun along the way.​

At the Special Education Centre we are teaching the children about problem solving, resilience, confidence building and getting them ready to adapt to everyday life by learning basic life skills. We plan our educational experiences in ways that meet the legal requirements and national quality standards following YMCA of Northern Territory policies and procedures.

Here at the Special Education Centre, we provide a friendly and safe environment equipped with a kitchen area, seating area and enclosed outdoor area, so the students can play outside in a secure and safe environment. 

We communicate with parents and carers on a regular basis and keep them up to date on their child's behaviour, learning achievements and overall outcomes.


After school care - $35 per day – 2.45pm to 5.45pm

Vacation care - $95 per day – 6.30am to 5.45pm
