St Joachim’s Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) is part of the St Joachim’s Primary School and Holland Park Mt Gravatt Parish. We operate out of a purpose built facility adjacent to the parish hall.

Our program supports working families by providing a safe environment during before school, after school and vacation care that is designed to cater to their children’s age, skills, interests and abilities. The programs are fun-filled and child focused with contributions from our children forming the basis of every experience.

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.
