Outside School Hours Care


At OSHC we endeavour to create a safe, relaxing and enjoyable environment. We strive to make children feel at home and relaxed as we recognise that this is their time. We follow the My Time: Our Place philosophy which encourages children to help create the environment and activities at the centre. We also aim to make parents feel comfortable and reassured that their children are safe and happy as we understand that parents have high work commitments.


We have a wonderful team of staff who wish to support and encourage children through activities and our service.
Parents and children are always welcome to come and have a look at our facilities and see first hand how our OSHC runs.

Before School Care

We supply breakfast until 8am and children often enjoy sitting around the kitchen table enjoying breakfast and a chat together. Children are able to enjoy indoor play including watching cartoons, movies, playing on the computer, colouring in, art and craft, home corner, construction and the games room. When it's time for school to begin the children are signed out and directed to their class rooms and the Prep children are walked over to their rooms. It’s always an enjoyable start to the morning.


 After School Care

We supply afternoon tea each day which always includes a serving of fruit. Children are able to have quiet time to do their homework whilst everyone else is outside enjoying outdoor play on the playgrounds or with our sports equipment. When homework time is completed children have the option to continue playing outside or come inside to enjoy some inside activities which include craft, pool, ping pong, computers, PS2, construction, home corner, movie, room and games. We are always working to include new activities and programs such as sports and photography.


 Vacation Care

At Vacation Care we aim to make the children feel as though they are on holidays and have the ability to shape their days. We have a variety of activities that we offer with our program designed to be all about the children having fun and exploring new experiences. The program is written in a way that is informative for parents and interesting to children. We have plenty of fun over the holidays and children come out with new memories and friends. Our program is located below along with our booking sheets. Some of the activities we enjoy include, art and craft, jumping castles, animal presentations, gardening, sports and much more.

Please feel free to call in or phone for a Programme for the holidays.
