OSHC & Vacation Care

St. Joseph’s Outside School Hours Care

St Joseph’s Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) is a not-for-profit service which operates from within the St. Joseph’s school grounds.

Our service is Child Care Benefit (CCB) approved, and eligible parents are able to claim Child Care Rebate (CCR) as well.

We provide Before School and After School Care during term time, and Vacation Care during school holidays, providing breakfast and afternoon tea daily.

We operate under the National Framework for School Age Care and My Time Our Place guidelines. St. Joseph’s OSHC employs friendly, professional, appropriately trained team members who are kind, understanding and highly-motivated and who actively participate in children’s experiences.

We provide a physically safe and emotionally secure environment where children can explore, socialise, and expand their interests through a variety of craft, physical and other fun activities which promote positive and inclusive interactions with peers and educators alike. Children are also given the opportunity to just “chillax” if they wish.

During Vacation Care, children can enjoy incursion activities where visitors come to the centre and share with the children, as well as excursion activities such as visits to skating, bowling, the park or the cinema, along with lots of fun and interesting activities provided daily here at the centre.
