Bannockburn daily activities may include centre-based fun or short trips to local facilities. Please see the program brochure for further information.

For all bookings where children attend the Newtown Stadium program, all children must be SIGNED IN upon arrival at Bannockburn Recreation Centre.

ALSO, on days where there are excursions planned away from Newtown Stadium, 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.
