Holy Cross Out of School Hours Care Kincumber

Holy Cross Out of School Hours Care (OOSH) is a service providing children with supervision and care on the School premises before and after school hours, as well as during the school holidays. Before school care is provided from 6:30am until 8:30am. After school care is provided from 3:30pm until 6:00pm. Vacation Care is provided from 6:30am until 6:00pm.

Our experienced team of educators strive to create an environment where each child feels welcome and encouraged to experiment and grow. We have many activities for children. We program our activities around the interests of the children so if there’s something that a child wants to explore, we facilitate that opportunity. Central to this is creating strong relationships with the children. We focus on getting to know each child, their interests and hobbies, so that we can provide the best possible care and the children feel comfortable. We pride ourselves on knowing the children that we care for.

For further information about this service, including cost and enrolment forms, call Holy Cross OSHC on 0481 602 034, email us on oshc.kincumber@catholiccaredbb.org.au or visit our Website.
