My Time Our Place

Developed by the Council of Australian Governments, My Time, Our Place is the Framework for School Age Care in Australia. YOSHC implements this to assist in providing children with opportunities to maximise their potential and develop a foundation for future success in life. The Framework acknowledges the importance of play and leisure in children’s learning and development and that their learning is not limited to any particular time or place. Developing life skills and
a sense of enjoyment are emphasised.
