OOSH is a child care service that allows parents with children aged 5-12 years old (or who are in years K-6) to seek or continue employment, be involved in study or leisure activities, and/or take respite while knowing their children are being looked after in the best care available.
Our service (which includes Before & After School Care and Vacation Care) aims to provide a fun and stimulating environment that guarantees children are supervised and guided by trained staff.
Children have the opportunity to choose from a variety of activities suited to their age, ability and interest.
All families are welcome to use the service, although bookings are essential as places are limited. Children with additional needs are also welcome, and wheelchair access is available.
Before school, breakfast is available for children between 6:30am and 8:00am. After school, a healthy afternoon tea is provided. The cost of the above is included in the standard session fee. (Please note: it is important to advise both verbally and in writing of any food allergies your child might have.)
It is recommended that all belongings are labelled to allow for the easy return of any lost property.
We arrange transport to and from school. This service is available to children from the following schools:
A variety of excursions (e.g. ice skating, ten-pin bowling, movies etc) are offered during school holidays. Attending children must wear closed-in shoes, shirts with sleeves and a hat.
