Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)


Welcome to Benowa YMCA OSHC!

We are your outside school hours care provider at Benowa State School.

The YMCA OSHC service is conveniently located inside the School next to the Access Centre and operates Monday to Friday from 6:30am - 8:45am and 2:55pm - 6:00pm and from 6:00am - 6:00pm during the holidays.
Our services are operated by qualified and experienced educators that are supported by a professional, highly dedicated Management and Administration team. The stability and quality offered by the support of YMCA Brisbane, including over 150 years of experience and 35+ OSHC services, guarantees every child is given the opportunity to grow in body, mind and spirit.

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.

How to enrol

We are very excited to inform you that our service has a fantastic online Booking and Waitlist management program called QK Enrol. This program will give you access to manage your own account information, where you will have the ability to make booking requests and allow you to complete and submit an online enrolment form for your child. 

You can do this and much, much more all within a parent portal called 'My Family Lounge'. You will also have the flexibility of booking in casual days and report absences for your child straight from your phone with just a few taps by downloading the My Family Lounge App!

Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

Many families are eligible for Child Care Subsidy, which can reduce the cost of Outside School Hours Care by up to 85%. All our services are CCS approved, so we encourage all families to find out whether they are eligible. To establish what level of CCS you may be entitled to please contact the Centrelink Family Line on 13 61 50.
