St Rose's OSHC

Welcome to St Rose Outside of School Hours Care (OSHC). Our dedicated team of educators strive to ensure the best possible outcomes for your children whilst attending our service. Even if your children are only casuals at our centre, our staff ensure there is a safe and welcoming environment for all children to be in.

Our service currently averages on 10-20 children each session which enables our educators to really get to know the children and define who they are and what they enjoy in life. We regularly speak to them as a group and discover what the children want at our OSHC.

Our team understand that OSHC is a priority for working families. However our main goal is to have the children love coming to OSHC and to have them want to come every day because of our fantastic program and loving and caring educators.

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

About our service

Our Collaroy Plateau OSHC is located on the school grounds of St Rose Catholic Primary School. Throughout our different programs we offer a variety of activities including, but not limited to:

  • Sports
  • Sustainability/gardening
  • Imaginative play
  • Painting
  • Music
  • Active play
  • Arts and craft
  • Board games
  • And whatever the children can imagine!

We understand that demands are placed upon working parents and children’s extra curricula activities. As a result, we offer a quiet space that children and parents can nominate whether they wish to participate in our homework program. 

Our educators

Our goal is to educate the children by adding activities that improve their physical, mental, communicational and confidence skills.

  • We will always have a menu that is varied, nutritious and designed to keep everyone happy whilst catering to any allergies.
  • We will always try to provide unique experiences that are fun and nurture your child’s development.
  • We will always respect your right to have your voice heard.
  • We will always respect your cultural background and provide inclusive practice.
  • We aim to always be there when you need us.
