St Nicholas OOSH Glendale

 

Located next to Holy Cross Primary School, St Nicholas OOSH Glendale is a 40-place centre catering to children aged 5 - 12 years.

St Nicholas OOSH utilises a framework for school-aged care in Australia called My Time, Our Place which states: “The Framework acknowledges the importance of play and leisure in children’s learning and development and that their learning is not limited to any particular time or place. Developing life skills and a sense of enjoyment are emphasised.”

“The objective of OOSH is to engage school-aged children in the planning and implementation of the program, which supports an interest-based approach while also providing opportunities to further develop social skills and other integral developmental skills,” says Tracey Sweetman, St Nicholas OOSH’s Project Manager.

OOSH Glendale provides the children with learning areas and recreational experiences offering diverse activities so children can undertake activities based on their interests.

“There’s a quiet space, so if children just want to come in after a big day at school, they can relax. If they’d like to do their homework, there’s a quiet space for homework. If they want to be creative, we facilitate that,” Tracey said.

Throughout the school holidays and on pupil free days, St Nicholas OOSH offers a vacation care program, which provides all-day care for the children.

During the most recent school holidays over the Christmas period, St Nicholas OOSH provided a variety of fun and entertaining activities for all the children. This ranged from creating their own t-shirt design, making slime and having a teddy bear’s picnic where all the children constructed their own teddy bear to share their picnic lunch with.
