OSHC

PROSPECT NORTH OSHC
OSHC what is it?

Outside school hours care (OSHC) provides care for school age children before and after school, on pupil free days and/or during school holidays (vacation care). OSHC services provide children with a variety of supervised play opportunities and recreational activities in a safe, supportive and relaxed environment.

OSHC educators provide a wide range of activities that are planned in consultation with children and their families, and reflect each child’s needs, interests and abilities. OSHC presents children with choices and challenges and encourages them to develop life skills, independence and friendships. In recognition of the age group attending outside school hour’s care, children take an active role in decision making to ensure the environment and experiences are child focused and fun
