Welcome to YMCA Mitchelton Specialist OSHC

Situated in on secure school grounds, our room is best accessed via Osborne Road - look out for the big YMCA sign. We endeavour to work towards building lasting friendships in a safe, supported and friendly environment.

What Happens at YMCA Mitchelton Specialist OSHC

The children and young people attending the service are engaged in a range of physical activities. We align this with our philosophy of learning through play to develop life skills that children can take into the real world on leaving the school.

Mitchelton Specialist OSHC provides a fun and engaging program in line with the National Quality Framework set by ACEQA and has been awarded the rating of Meeting National Quality Framework in assessment and rating.

All staff member have experience and training with a vast range of disabilities and have been trained in Epilepsy, ASD, Midazolam and Tube feeding as well as hold a current Blue Card and First Aid Certificate. In order to maintain our high level of care we offer a small operational ratio of 1 staff member to three young people to ensure we can provide individualised support and have the ability to cater for those with need requiring 1 on 1 care. All staff have participated in the YMCA of Brisbane's Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy training and can assist with all toileting needs. YMCA OSHC staff understand the need to be caring and professional at all times while maintaining a sense of fun.
