Before and After School Care
At Waratah OOSH Centre we look after Kindergarten to year 6. The Centre is open from 6.30am for Before school care and until 6.00pm for after school care and the children are cared for by mature, friendly, caring and qualified educators. Mornings include a free setup program with light breakfast. Children are taken to school on one of our OOSH buses. Afternoon children are collected from school by one of our OOSH buses. Our afterschool program includes:
- Indoor and outdoor play
- Craft, construction and imagination play
Afternoon tea will be provided, based on a nutritional menu. Children are able to blend and have the opportunity to make friends with children from different schools.
The vacation care program is run every school holiday according to state schools dates. For more information on vacation care, please refer to vacation tab.
Excursions outside the Centre can play a valuable part of our program here at OOSH. Most of these excursions take place during our vacation care period and a holiday diary will explain what will occur on the day.
Excursion fees are NOT included in the payment, they are additional fees.
Sign In and Sign Out Sheets
These sheets must be signed daily, and each child must be signed in individually. This is a legal document to say that your child/ren were in our care between the signed times. This document is also used in cases of any emergency evacuation. Children that are signed in are noted as being in our care and those children will be accounted for.
