Children are encouraged to make their own afternoon tea. Children who attend OSHC are encouraged to participate in a number of activities including sports, arts and craft and outdoor/indoor games.
OSHC is a warm and friendly environment. Children are encouraged to help plan and join in activities and are always given opportunities partake in their own activities with their friends. Children are always encouraged to use manners and learn how to cooperate with a range of different aged students and adults. We provide care for up to 75 children, so there will always be someone else to play with. Children can choose whether they would like to play inside, outside, on the playground or tennis courts.
Our staff are dedicated, caring people who are friendly, warm and full of encouragement. Majority of staff members are studying in the field of child care or to be primary education. Staffing ensures an appropriate student/adult ratio. All staff have a Blue Card/Suitability Card with most staff also trained in First Aid and CPR.
