The Y OSHC Day Trip to Aussie World
On December 20th, the YMCA Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) organised a super fun day at Aussie World on the Sunshine Coast, making happy memories for 1535 kids. This event brought together 32 OSHC services and showed how committed YMCA is to giving children enjoyable and educational vacation experiences.
Sharon, who manages one of the YMCA OSHC centres, shared her excitement, saying, "We love giving kids a great vacation care experience. This special day at Aussie World shows how dedicated we are to creating lasting memories for the kids we take care of." The day not only made a big impact on the kids but also received heartfelt thanks from parents. Naomi, one of the parents, praised Sharon, saying, "You've made a safe and welcoming space for all kids and families. The service feels like an extended family."
Lachie, Naomi's son, echoed the sentiment, expressing his gratitude with a simple yet heartfelt, "Thank you for a fun day. I had a great time. My favorite part of the day was all the rides and, of course, the slurpee."
Naomi's message resonated with the broader sentiment shared by many parents who appreciate the inclusive and organised approach of YMCA OSHC.
Sharon, reflecting on the success of the day, said, "It's not just about the activities; it's about creating a sense of comfort, belonging, and community for the children. We want them to take responsibility for their experiences at OSHC and grow in body, mind, and spirit."
