Before & After School Care service at
The Patch Primary School

 

OSHClub is one of Australia’s leading providers of Before & After School Care services, and has a record for successfully delivering the highest-quality care in Australia (as assessed independently by the Regulatory Authority). OSHClub forms strong, collaborative ties with our partner schools, and we are designing the service to meet the specific needs of your school community.

What happens at OSHClub?

We believe in the power of choice for each child, so each session comprises a range of experiences for children to choose from, …we just want children to have fun!

Our service is designed to develop stronger, healthier and happier children, and to provide an environment that is like a ‘home away from home’. It is developed in consultation with children, parents, the school community and staff, and tailored to cater to the children’s age, skill, interests and abilities, through a variety of challenging and recreational activities.

Activities include:

> Art/craft                                 > Dress-ups           > Science                 > Loads of toys

> Board games                         > Games                > Drama                   > Sports

> Art and craft materials           > Cooking              > Gardening             > Homework time (if required)

We also encourage lots of outside and sporting activities, which make the most of the school’s excellent grounds and facilities.
