Helpful Resources


Our Educators

All employees at YMCA have participated in the Safeguarding Children program; have undergone Working with Children, and Police checks. They have a very good understanding of their obligations around child protection, and keeping children safe. Our educators are highly committed, and all hold, or are working towards, qualifications in the early childhood care and education profession. Our educators' ongoing professional development is paramount to our service, and is always promoted and supported by the YMCA.

Childcare Enrolments

All bookings for our childcare services including school holiday programs can be made by enrolling or submitting a waitlist enquiry - click here for more information.

Government Support

Our services are approved by the Federal Government, and are therefore subsidised through the Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate schemes, helping families with the cost of care.

Early Learning Centres

The Centres are closed on Public holidays and for two weeks over the Christmas period.
We provide opportunities for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years, to participate in a wonderfully unique environment, offering a variety of indoor and outdoor activities on a daily basis. We provide nutritious meals throughout the day, promoting the health and wellbeing of all children in our care.
We embrace the National Quality framework, and ensure that this is reflected throughout our learning environment, as we strive to continually offer high quality care and education.
