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.
