St Gerard's OSHC

Welcome to St Gerard's Outside of School Hours Care (OSHC). Our dedicated team of educators care about creating an environment where each child feels welcome and encouraged to experiment and grow in a variety of areas. We seek to provide a range of activities so that each child can engage in something they are interested in.

Further, we structure our activities around the interests of the children so if there is some area that a child wants to explore, we do our best to 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.

Please feel welcome to visit our service or contact me should you require any further information.
