PCYC RESPONSE TO THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19) – PCYC TEMPORARY CENTRE CLOSURE
We are excited to say we’re getting ready to welcome more children and young people back to our Centre.
We know everyone has been missing their favourite activities almost as much as we’ve missed the buzz of young people at our Centre.
You will hear from us when your favourite program or activity is restarting, as well as any changes to the previous timetable, for the remainder of Term Two.
We are however, now able to provide Out of Hours School Care for families previously registered, for the remainder of Term Two. Before school care is still temporarily closed. Please make sure that you book your child’s place by emailing your relevant centre48 hours before the required date so that we can plan accordingly.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
Out of School Care
A number of our Centres offer out of school care, vacation care and youth holiday activities which aims to engage young people by providing them with a safe space to engage in activities before and after school, on weekends and during school holidays.
Activities includes Xbox, Wii, music DVD’S, air hockey, Foosball, Hang out Lounge areas and in most cases, snacks and beverages are provided.
Young people here have the opportunity to attend and participate in a range of activities in a safe and secure environment. If needed, they also have access to Youth Workers and WA PCYC employees who can help identify their needs and either work with them to address them, or refer them to other agencies and services for the appropriate support.
WA PCYC Out of School Care activities provide young people with a place to meet and the opportunity to try new activities. We aim to improve relationships between youth and the community by providing youth activities that focus on increasing participants’ communication skills and their ability to work as a team.
