OOSH stands for Out Of School Hours. OOSH provides Before School Care (BSC) & After School Care (ASC) and Vacation Care for children from 4 years old  to 12 years old. It is a place where children can feel safe and nurtured in a friendly, engaging environment.


Before School Care: 6.30am – 9.00am 

After School Care: 3.00pm – 6.00pm (6.30pm during daylight savings) 

Vacation Care: 6:30am - 6:00pm (6:30 during daylight savings)



Our programming is committed to nurturing and extending each child's cognitive, physical, emotional and intellectual development in a child friendly, supportive and fun environment.


The service offers a planned, flexible and balanced program, which will respond to children, parent/caregivers and staff needs.


Each week opportunities for free play, craft, sport, board games, reading, homework, art and quiet time are made available.


Children are encouraged to discuss with our Educators the ideas and activities they would like to see included in the weekly program. When children feel like they have a voice it builds confidence, self-esteem and a creates a sense of belonging. It enables them to connect with the service as the program can be modified to meet their individual needs, interests and abilities. 


As part of our record keeping we are required to maintain current details of your child’s immunisation status. You will be required to upload a copy of your child’s immunisation records when you enrol. Due to changes to the immunisation laws we are unable to enrol children who are not immunised.
