YMCA has been a part of the Gumdale State School community since September 2014 and are excited to be a permanent fixture in the future of Gumdale State School.  As a service we strive to ensure all young people are provided with opportunities to belong, learn, grow and be happy.

Our Team 

YMCA Gumdale OSHC has a strong team of fifteen educators. Many of our casual team members are currently enrolled in full time study in the field of education and, bring a range of innovative ideas to our service each day. The team is led by myself as Coordinator and, Assistant Coordinator Tracy Wallis.  I have completed a Bachelor of Social Science and a Graduate Diploma in Education. Before joining the YMCA in November 2014, I was employed as secondary school teacher. I gained experience in several private high schools across Queensland and NSW and still hold a current registration with the Queensland College of Teachers. Since graduating from university I have continued to have a passion for learning and have attended numerous professional development courses within the education and care industry.

Tracy Wallis holds a Diploma in Children’s Services and has over 6 years’ experience in the childcare industry. Tracy is a mother to four beautiful children and is passionate about helping children to discover their interests and talents. Tracy has been a part of the Gumdale community for several years and is dedicated to ensuring YMCA Gumdale OSHC is a warm, friendly and welcoming place for families.


Our Program

Our Program is developed according to the My Time Our Place Framework and is centralised around the elements of     

Belonging, Being and Becoming. Through our program we have created an environment which is safe, inclusive, diverse, engaging and fun. By learning through play, our children are encouraged to discover and explore their world and cultivate a sense of self. We believe all children are born with the desire and ability to develop, learn and explore and deserve to have opportunities and experiences that challenge their diverse needs. 

Our Service 

YMCA Gumdale OSHC is ideally located on the grounds of Gumdale State School. Our purpose built facility was specifically designed to provide paramount outside school hours care to the residents of Gumdale and surrounds.  Our OSHC service is located in the centre of the school ensuring student safety and creating convenience for our parents, with just short walk from the school carpark.

With access to numerous spaces within the school grounds, YMCA Gumdale has the resources to offer an incredibly diverse range of games and activities for your children to enjoy. The stability and quality offered by the support of YMCA Brisbane, including over 150 years of experience, and twenty-seven OSHC services, guarantees every child is given the opportunity to grow in body, mind and spirit.
