YMCA Canberra offers Before School Care (BSC) for primary school children across Canberra. Our OSHC services provide children with opportunities to learn and develop new skills and interests in a caring and supportive environment.
All services are Child Care Subsidy (CCS) Approved. Enrolments are accepted on a permanent and a casual basis for Before School Care. All Before School Care services operate Monday to Friday during school terms from their designated opening time until school starts (Sacred Heart operates from 7.00 to 8.30am). A light breakfast is provided for all children attending and this is included in the fees.
We take enrolments online through My Family Lounge (MFL). You can use this portal to start the enrolment process for Before School Care.
