Our centre is located in a bushland setting within the grounds of St Augustine’s Parish Primary School as part of the Coolangatta -Tugun Parish community.

Our Outside School Hours Care program supports working families by providing a safe environment before and after school that is designed to cater to their children’s age, skills, interests and abilities.

We run a flexible and adaptable child-initiated program incorporating children’s ideas, cultures and interests. We view each child as having preparedness, potential, curiosity and interest in constructing their own learning and in negotiating everything the environment presents to them. We provide guidance and support to children so they can discover, explore and create something new everyday.

Our centre strives to foster a culture that celebrates diversity and interdependence and we encourage children to value and respect each other.

We encourage free play and promote both indoor and outdoor, individual and group activities.

Jodie Smith

Coordinator

I’ve been an early ed coordinator since:
2012 and I worked in the OSHC sector for three years before that.
My favourite thing about being an early ed coordinator is:

Building relationships with children, families and my team. Helping both children and educators continue to grow and learn.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
My door is always open if you want some advice, to share feedback, or just some reassurance, parenting is both the most difficult and most rewarding job there is, and you’re doing an incredible job (even if sometimes it doesn’t feel like it).
My favourite way to relax is:
Reading a book by the beach, camping, paddle boarding or preferably a combination of the three!
