Outdoor areas and shade facilities offer a wide variety of options for play and learning activities. Inside time is also available for games, art, craft, music and a homework corner. Staff members are always happy to help children with school projects, etc when possible.

Active After School Communities Program
The centre participates in the Active After School Communities (AASC) program two afternoons a week. This is a national program providing Australian primary school aged children with access to free, structured physical activity programs in the after school timeslot of 3pm - 5.30pm. There is no additional cost for children to take part in this program.

Sun safe
OOSH follows a sun safe policy of No Hat, No Play in uncovered outdoor areas. Parents are requested to ensure their child/children have a hat and sunscreen is supplied.

Holiday care
We offer a program that is fun, safe, stimulating and inclusive for children of all ages. Activities may include sport, games, art, craft, music, swimming, cooking and plenty of exercising excursions. Children are not pressured to participate and their choice of activities is respected.

All booked children are required to attend the excursions, as we do not have the staff to cover both excursions and in house activities on the same day (some excursions may incur an extra fee above daily care fees). As we encourage healthy eating please provide your child with a nutritious lunch, morning tea and water bottle (no soft drinks please). Afternoon tea is provided by the centre.

To secure your child’s place you must complete a Holiday Care Booking Form, which can be obtained three weeks prior to each school holiday period.

OOSH is a nut free centre
