Out of School Care is Awesome!

Orange Out of School Hours (OOSH) care operates centre-based care before and after school, on pupil-free days and on all-day holidays for primary school children aged 5-12 years.

Care is based on providing a secure and happy place to get ready for school, or wind down after school, in a secure and happy environment. The program - devised with the participation of the children -  is workshop and excursion-based with the focus on play.

Our service sources children from a range of schools and encourages participation in socialisation and friendship activities.

Parents are welcome to visit and participate.The service is approved for Child Care Benefits.
