OOSH and vacation care

Our Out of School Hours (OOSH) and vacation care programs provide care before, after school and each school holidays, for children from preschool to year six.

Our Out of School Hours (OOSH) and vacation care programs work within the legislative requirements of the National Quality Frameworks (NQF) and the Education and Care Services National Regulations 2018. Services use the curriculum framework of My Time Our Place to deliver best practice, quality play and recreation based programs to children. Programs work with the Australian Childrens Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) to participate in recurrent assessment and rating visits.

Our OOSH services provide before school, after school and vacation care for primary school aged children. We provide parents with the security of knowing their children are being educated and cared for in a safe, friendly and relaxed environment each day. Nutritious snacks based on the Eat Smart, Play Smart Program and drinks are offered to the children, together with a wide variety of interesting play and recreational experiences.

All programs will operate on school days as set by the NSW Board of Education and Communities.

Our vacation care programs operate during school holidays. Albury, North Albury and Trinity provide programs for children in Kindergarten to year three (inclusive). St Pat’s provide a program called the SPOT for children in years four to six (inclusive). Our Albury Family Day Care Service offers full day positions for children aged four to grade three (inclusive) each school holidays.

Please note that our St Pats and Trinity programs will operate on days set by the Catholic Board of Education and the Anglican Schools Commission. All Programs will be closed for all New South Wales and National Gazetted Public Holidays. Before school care is currently only offered to children attending Albury Public and St Patricks Parish school.
