Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)

Our OSHC program is designed to meet the needs and interests of each child. Experiences are open-ended and children are encouraged to pursue their own interests and talents.

Our service aims to provide high-quality care following the National Quality Framework and provide an environment which will offer children many opportunities to develop physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally.  

We are part of the national Sporting Schools Program, and as such, have a focus on healthy eating and physical activity, and all children are actively encouraged to participate in a wide range of sports clinics. Homework and snack time is also incorporated into our daily program.

St Joseph’s Out of School Hours Care Payneham works in  partnership with families and strives to create a community of faith where all are called to live in a loving relationship with God and with each other.

We promote the pursuit of personal excellence and the love of learning in an environment which respects the dignity of each person.

St Joseph’s  Payneham OSHC. works in partnership with families, school and the wider community to provide children’s educational and care services during out of school hours. We value our unique heritage, and we work towards creating a better world for the future.
