Out of School Hours Care

The Heights OSHC and Vacation Care

We are a child focused program that provides recreational care for children aged 4-13 years, in a warm, safe and caring environment.

We provide care in our before and after school care sessions as well as pupil free days, and we are also open during the school holidays!

We are a successfully accredited, quality assured service.

October Vacation Care 2023 is here! Check out all the exciting, themed days, incursions and excursions for the upcoming holidays!
We have planned a variety of incursions and plenty of first-time experiences. The Academy of Self Defence and Martial Arts will be conducting a special workshop for all ages. The OSHC staff have planned their very own Amazing Race and Spring Fair with pop-up stalls, carnival games and Colour Run! The educators from GooRoo Animation will be facilitating a Claymation experience and the team at Castle Capers are delivery nine holes of mini golf.

Excursions will be a combination of indoor and outdoor activities as we can expect some warmer weather as we enter spring. Children of all ages will have plenty to look forward to with a variety of adventures. This includes trips to Sea Stars Play Cafe, Adelaide Zoo and the ARC at Campbelltown for indoor swimming. Other favourites include a trip to Piccadilly Cinema and the return of Woodhouse Adventure Park, AFL Max and a luncheon at Fasta Pasta!
