Update - We are continuing to monitor for any further issues.
Jan 21, 16:38 AEDT
Update - We are pleased to announce that Jamison Early Learning Centre reopened today and is back to business as usual. Clean up is still happening in the areas used by Jamison Vacation Care so this program will continue to be relocated at Weetangera Primary School located on Southwell Street in Weetangera tomorrow. We will advise when the program can return to its normal location but we are hoping it will be later this week.

Payments: Due to the impact from yesterday’s storm, our internet services were also interrupted and this has caused the delay in emailing invoices. All invoices will be emailed tomorrow Wednesday 22 January.
Jan 21, 16:36 AEDT
Update - As per previous communication, Canberra has had a significant storm pass through and unfortunately our services at Jamison have been affected with some flooding in the gym, dining and foyer areas.

Emergency services, maintenance and building crews have attended today and assessed the damage and based on this, services will be impacted tomorrow as outlined below.

JAMISON EARLY LEARNING CENTRE - Delayed opening time for Tuesday 21/01/20
The ELC will not be open in the morning while we finish the clean up but will resume services at 12 noon. We will notify you if there are any further changes, otherwise feel free to drop your children off from 12pm.

JAMISON VACATION CARE - Relocated for Tuesday 21/01/20
We have relocated this vacation care program for tomorrow to Weetangera Primary School located on Southwell Street in Weetangera. We will advise tomorrow if we need to continue to relocate post tomorrow.

Thank you to parents and carers for your patience.

Monitoring - UPDATE: Storm conditions have now impacted both the YMCA Canberra Jamison Vacation Care and Jamison Early Learning Centre and we need parents/carers to collect children who are in attendance today so an assessment of the location can be completed.

Please ignore any previous communication from YMCA Canberra that indicated the ELC was still open. In the last 30 minutes, this status has changed and now all children at Jamison need to be collected urgently as we need to close the Centre. Children are all safe, but your urgent attention is required.

We will send another alert after the assessment has been completed and to advise is services can be resumed tomorrow.

Resolved - We are pleased to advise that due to significant improvements with air quality in Canberra that YMCA Services will resume to business as usual next week and daily SMS alerts will now cease. This also means that services that were temporarily relocated i.e. Vacation Care Programs, during the past week, will return to their usual location on Monday. Excursions will also go ahead next week. Excursion location may be determined on the day, after taking weather conditions into consideration.

During forced closures at Early Learning Centres or for children that were not well enough to attend while smoke was visibly present at Centres, as previously communicated we have not charged families for those days. As we are fully operational and there is no smoke visibly present in our Centres, daily fees for childcare will be incurred as per normal arrangements from Monday 13th January 2020.

We thank you for your patience during this period and if conditions significantly change we will advise members, families and staff if there is any impact to services in the future.
