At Joan Watters we encompass a philosophy which values and recognises each individual child. We believe that all children should be provided with a learning environment where there is a strong sense of belonging and a secure and caring atmosphere.
The educators at YMCA Joan Watters provide children with the opportunity to explore, create and express themselves through a variety of learning experiences which recognises that each child is a strong, capable and confident learner.
Overall at Joan Watters we are committed to providing meaningful and engaging learning opportunities for all the children and to ensure we are always improving for the benefit of the service and ultimately the children’s wellbeing.
Our children have attended Joan Watters OSHC for the past 2.5 years. The centre is in a great location and the staff make good use of the outdoor space in the centre and the adjacent park. They both love going, it can be hard to get them to come home in the evening. The centre has a great after school programme with sports, games, cooking, reading and crafts. The centre also offers fantastic vacation care excursions.

I am so thrilled I decided to move Jack from his old OSHC Care to YMCA Wembley. Now he gets grumpy with me when he's not going to out of school care! I really love the staff, they are great with communication and very helpful, and they obviously love spending time with kids. The only hassle I have now is getting him out of there and in the car to go home.
