    Vacation Care

    7:30am - 6:00pm

We provide a fun and safe environment for school aged children to enjoy their time before and after school, as well as during vacation care on school holidays and pupil free days. We provide a healthy breakfast, a snack for afternoon tea, and plan a variety of craft, art, games, gardening, sports and play experiences for children’s’ enjoyment and development. We are based in our own room near the prep playground, but also make use of other school facilities as required.

We work within the Australian Government’s “My Time, Our Place” National Quality Framework to meet the following five child outcomes:

1. Children have a strong sense of identity
2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world
3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
4. Children are confident and involved learners
5. Children are effective communicators

Our service is committed to continuous improvement, and we take a collaborative approach to this, with input from our children, parents, staff, Hendra Northgate Parish and the Our Lady Help of Christians Primary School community.

Our service is licensed to care for 45 children and is registered for the Child Care subsidy.

Rosie Maguire

Coordinator

I’ve been an early ed coordinator for:
Four years.
My favourite thing about being an early ed coordinator is:
Developing relationships with children, families and the community as we work towards common goals. I particularly love engaging children in informal child-centred learning experiences that don’t “feel” like learning, so that they get the most out of their time at OSHC.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
Something exciting, fun or positive about their child’s experiences at OSHC and their social development.
My favourite way to relax is:
Spending time with friends and family, or engaging in a leisure activity…sometimes both at the same time!
