Parents - Outside School Hours Care


The Y Ballarat run the OSHC program out of our school faciltiies, in a safe and caring environment outside normal school hours.  The program aims to be a home away from home where the students are involved in planning the activities and where they genuinely enjoy attending.

The program offers the following services:

  • After School Care                         3.30pm - 6.30pm
  • Curriculum/Pupil Free Day           6.45am - 6.30pm
  • Prep Wednesday's for February   8.30am - 3.30pm

Students have the opportunity to participate in stimulating activities, mix with their peers and have fun. The program can be used either casually or on a permanent basis and is registered with the Family Assistance Office which enables families (that qualify) to claim the Child Care Benefit and/or the Child Care Rebate.

During After School Care students have healthy and varied snack options such as fruit, pancakes, pasta, hot foods, homemade goodies, sandwiches, dips and biscuits. Students who attend the OSHC programs participate in games, outdoor play, cooking and craft activities as well as having the opportunity to complete homework, mix with their friends and enjoy themselves.

The Holiday Programs often involve excursions, incursions and planned theme days. For further information please contact the OSHC Coordinator on 0447 710 331.
