From 1 July 2014 YMCA and P&Cs Qld will partner to bring the best Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) service to state schools across Queensland. The move is as a result of the identification of a common vision to provide a safe and fun environment for children outside of regular school hours.
The CEOs of YMCA and P&CS Qld, Alan Bray and Kevan Goodworth met last week to sign off on the agreement that will see the organisations work together to develop a service that identifies and addresses the needs of Queensland school communities.
“Many P&Cs in Queensland run high quality OSHC services and will continue to do so” stated P&Cs Qld CEO Kevan Goodworth.
“By partnering with YMCA we are promoting an alternative for those P&Cs and schools who can no longer provide the time and resources to provide the best level of care. YMCA offer a very high standard service by working closely with school communities.”
YMCA CEO Alan Bray said “The YMCA is delighted to be partnering with P & Cs Qld and we look forward to bringing our extensive experience and dedicated staff to create a positive alternative to those schools looking for a high quality OSHC program.”
Over the next year P&Cs Qld and YMCA will work together and with the communities we support in order to establish the best out of school hours care in Australia.
