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.

Some of the fun things we like to do at OSHC are cooking, watching movies, playing sport, creating masterpieces with craft, going to the playground, playing on the Xbox/computers and much more.

Some of our favourite Vacation Care excursions have been to the Circus, Pizza Hut, Theatre, Movies, Roller skating, Bounce, Latitude, Inflatable World and the list goes on!
