Our Lady of Dolours Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) Mitchelton
We are located within the wonderful community of Our Lady of Dolours School and the local Parish.
Our Outside School Hours Care program supports working families by providing a safe environment before and after school that is designed to cater to their children’s age, skills, interests and abilities.
We do this through a flexible and adaptable child-initiated program incorporating children’s ideas, cultures and interests. We view a child as having preparedness, potential, curiosity and interest in constructing their own learning and in negotiating everything the environment brings to them. We provide the environment and guidance that gives opportunities for discovery, exploration, creativity and choice.
We strive to foster an environment that celebrates diversity and interdependence. We encourage children to value and respect the individual uniqueness, spirituality and contribution of others.
We encourage free play and promote both indoor and outdoor, individual and group activities.
We are a small service which gives staff the opportunity to really get to know the children and their families. With Before School Care 15-30 children and After School Care 25-50 children daily.
The children love OSHC and have so much fun they don’t want to go home…….
