OOSH Child Care

St Nicholas OOSH Shortland has 30 spaces and provides out-of-school hours care for children enrolled at Our Lady of Victories Catholic Primary School. Several play spaces exist within the centre to provoke each child’s imagination and encourage creativity. Whether the child wants to unwind after a big day at school, do something creative, or collaborate on a puzzle with other children, St Nicholas OOSH has it covered. We cater to the needs and interests of individual children within a context that promotes collaboration and active citizenship. Children under our care have a choice and control over their learning as they work with our educators to extend their life skills while having fun at the same time.

Before-school care operates from 6.30am-8.30am and a wholesome breakfast is provided until 7.30am while children play and participate in a variety of facilitated activities.

After-school care operates from 3pm-6pm, providing children with opportunities to participate in sporting activities, crafts, rest and homework. An afternoon tea snack is also provided each day — varying depending on suggestions from children.

Vacation care runs on pupil-free days and in the school holidays, with the centre open from 6.30am-6pm. Children present on these days engage with a variety of fun activities, whether these are excursions to local attractions, incursions bringing in experiences to us, arts and sporting activities, or just the chance to simply hang out with friends.
