St Francis Xavier Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) Runaway Bay

At St Francis Xavier OSHC we create a safe, relaxing and enjoyable environment. We strive to make children feel at home and relaxed as we recognise that this is their down time.

We encourage children to help create the environment and activities at the centre and has a strong focus on each child as an individual.

We also aim to make parents feel comfortable and reassured that their children are safe and happy as we understand that parents have high work commitments and this can be an added stress.

We have a wonderful team who support and encourage children through activities at our service and who endeavour to ensure each child’s individual needs are met.

Parents and children are always welcome to visit our facilities and see how our OSHC runs.

“We have received the rating of Exceeding the National Quality Standard in all seven areas in which we were assessed. We continue to strive to meet this standard and to improve”.

Additional Information

Before School Care

We supply breakfast until 8:00am and children often enjoy sitting around the kitchen table enjoying breakfast and a chat together. Children are able to enjoy indoor play including watching cartoons, movies, colouring in, art and craft, home corner, construction and the games room. When it’s time for school to begin the children are signed out and directed to their class rooms and the prep children are walked over to their rooms. It’s always an enjoyable start to the morning.

After School Care

We supply afternoon tea each day which always includes a serving of fruit. Children are able to have quiet time to do their homework whilst everyone else is outside enjoying outdoor play on the playgrounds or with our sports equipment. When homework time is completed children have the option to continue playing outside or come inside to enjoy some inside activities which include craft, pool, ping pong, gaming devices, construction, home corner, movie room and games. We are always working to include new activities and programs in our curriculum.

Vacation Care

At Vacation Care we aim to make the children feel as though they are on holidays and have the ability to shape their days. We have a variety of activities that we offer; with our program designed to be all about the children having fun and exploring new experiences. We have plenty of fun over the holidays and children leave with new memories and friends. Some of the activities we enjoy include; art and craft, jumping castles, animal presentations, gardening, sports and much more.
