Out of school hours care (OSHC)

Surrey Downs Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) is a quality program offered to students by the Surrey Downs Governing Council. We offer quality care for primary school students before and after school as well as on pupil free days.

The service provides a caring, safe and happy environment where children can develop their skills and abilities by exploring, creating and playing. We have a variety of activities for children to choose from; including art and craft activities, board games, construction, dress ups, outdoor play, reading and a variety of electronics.

Our activities are composed as part of our program, which is structured around student, parent and staff input. Free play is encouraged at all times, however time for homework is allocated in the afternoons when our staff are available to assist students.

The staff at Surrey Downs OSHC are responsible, caring and enthusiastic. We are continually reflecting on our practice for improvement in order to ensure we offer the highest quality care at all times.

Our policies and procedures are available for parents to view at any time at the Parent’s Desk.
