St Bernard’s Outside School Hours Care is part of the St Bernard’s Parish and school community and has been providing services since 1990.

Our 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.

I’ve been an early ed coordinator for:
30 years.
My favourite thing about being an early ed coordinator is:
Watching the children grow from nervous young children into confident students ready to face the big wide world.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
To remember our children are a gift from God and to love, teach and respect them so they know how to pass this onto all people.
My favourite way to relax is:
Watching TV and travel.
