Outside School Hours Care (OSHC)
This service provides education and care for Primary school children outside of scheduled school hours, and possibly student-free days.
OSHC is an education and care service that supports children to:
- engage in play and leisure activities
- learn new skills to further their development
- build relationships with educators in a community that is connected to, but separate from, the school community
OSHC locations are usually located at or close to primary schools, but can also be at locations such as:
- community centres
- neighbourhood houses
- recreation centres
Hours will vary depending on community needs, generally operating on weekdays as:
- before school care, 7am—8.45am (or until school start time)
- after school care (including if school finishes early), 3.30pm—6pm (or from school finish time)
- vacation care (during school holidays), 7am—6pm.
