OUT OF SCHOOL HOURS (OOSH) CARE

St Joseph's is proud to partner with CatholicCare to provide our on-site Out of School Hours (OOSH) Care program. The program is based on Australia's National Quality Framework, designed specifically for OOSH, which aims to extend and enrich children's wellbeing and development in school age settings.

CatholicCare's dedicated team of education professionals are university trained early childhood teachers or TAFE trained Diploma educators who support and respect the uniqueness and individuality of children and their families.

Their educators aim to collaborate with the children in their care to provide play and leisure opportunities that are meaningful to them and support their wellbeing, learning and personal development.
