MacKillop’s Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) service offers before and after school care, as well as Vacation care over school holidays.
OSHC caregivers support families in raising their children by helping parents to balance family activities and workplace responsibilities. They do this by responding to each child’s needs with care that is sensitive and relevant, maintaining collaborative relationships with families, and providing best practice education that is also creative and challenging.
School-aged care programs offer safe and productive activities during the hours outside of the school day. Recreational programs of general supervision and individual attention are provided by CELC staff, to assist all elements of each child’s development.
Programmes provide a setting where children:
- Experience recreational activities within a setting designed specifically for school-aged children
- Socialise with their peers in a relaxed environment, with staff on hand to facilitate social skills and self-confidence
- Engage with staff and peers in quality programs developed collaboratively by the children and staff
