Out Of School Hours care

Out of School Care is Awesome!

Exceeding Quality Standards

Out of School Hours Care is

a not-for-profit early childhood centre with

Orange City Council's Children's Services Network

OOSH Logo Oct 2012

OOSH (Orange Out of School Hours) care operates centre-based care before and after school, on pupil-free days and on all-day holidays for primary school children between the ages of five to twelve years.

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

Our service is accessed by children from a range of schools in the area, and encourages participation in socialisation and friendship activities. Parents are welcome to visit and participate.

This service is approved for Child Care Benefits for the assistance of parents who qualify.
