Out of School Hours Care

Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)

At McAuley OSHC and Vacation Care, we believe that all learners deserve to have the opportunity to be creative and to be supported in their gifts. We have a holistic approach to learning and development, encouraging collaboration with others. Throughout each session, our Mercy Keys of Respect, Compassion, Gratitude, Courage and Creativity are shown and encouraged. Learners are encouraged to make connections with each other and the wider community celebrating their individuality, diversity and potential.

Learners will have the opportunity to participate in a range of crafts and sporting activities, as well as excursions and incursions during Vacation Care.

All are welcome. We look forward to caring for your child or children and involving your family in our service.
