OPENING HOURS

Monday-Friday 7:30AM – 6:00PM
School Holiday Program operates during all Victorian school holidays. Not open for School Holiday Program on Public Holidays.

SIGNING IN/OUT

All children must be SIGNED IN upon arrival at the centre. Children must be signed in by 9:00am.
Sign in sheets are grouped as:

  • JUNIOR – Grades Prep/1
  • INTERMEDIATE - Grades 2/3
  • SENIOR - Grades 4/5
  • GRADE 6 & OVER – (as is)
  • CAMP EXCURSION – all children booked for day trips to Camp Wyuna
  • OUT & ABOUT – excursion group ages 11+

There are 5 separate attendance sheets as per grouping. Parents must sign in each child in their relevant grade groups.
ALSO, on days where there are excursions planned, there will be a "Permission to Attend Excursion Form" which will be situated next to the sign in/out sheets.
Please ensure that when signing in your child/ren, you also complete this form. Failure to do so may mean that your child/ren will not be able to attend the excursion for that particular day.

Children are generally only grouped by age when marking attendances, when going on excursion or if specialised coaches/instructors visit the YMCA to deliver activities.
Children, at all times, have CHOICES and may choose to participate in the activities they like. This may mean interacting with different age groups throughout the day.
If, when being grouped for special activities, children wish to go in a different group , they need only communicate this to staff.

Our daily activities include both excursions and centre-based activities.
A wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities are provided for the children, and these range from sports and games, to art and craft, healthy eating, team sports, gymnastics, large and small group activities, children’s video’s, drama and music activities and much more.

All children booked in on days of excursions will be expected to attend however participation is not compulsory. Families will, however, still be charged the excursion day fee.
We encourage parents, guardians and children to be involved in the planning of these programs to ensure that their child/ren’s needs are being met. This can include cultural diversity, general interests or seasonal-relevant activities.

Program information for each school holidays will be available from reception, most schools in the Geelong area as well as on the website.
