St John Fisher's OSHC

 

Welcome to St John Fisher's Outside of School Hours Care (OSHC).  We pride ourselves in being a place for our children to share their experiences, manifest their thoughts, create their ideas, explore the imaginary, discover new ways, express their emotions and inspire new possibilities.

We believe every child is born an artist and it is our responsibility (educators, carers, teachers, parents and coaches) to help find their talent and stimulate their ability to think creatively. Our dedicated team of educators embrace diversity and we believe that each child is different and unique, and therefore able to contribute with the most diverse perspectives, which only enriches the quality of our program.

When children value diversity, they not only recognise and respect differences but they understand this is actually a really good thing. It represents more possibilities. By the end of the day, we are proud of being known as the happiest classroom of the school where no one wants to leave.

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