Out of School Hours

Care for children up to 13 years, usually within school grounds. Early drop-offs and late pick-ups are catered for.

Qualified care before and after school

Out of School Hours Care (OOSH) operates on school days for busy parents. Children simply go to school and remain under the care of a qualified educator until a guardian can collect them. The centres provide:

  • An interesting range of activities – including sports, art, craft, group games and quiet play
  • Safe, enjoyable atmospheres
  • Care that often exceeds the National Quality Standard 
  • High-quality educational programs
  • Focus on safety, health, and well-being of children with all activities

Before and after school care voucher

Parents and careers of children enrolled in all primary schools in NSW can now apply for a $500 voucher to be used on Before and After School Care Services and School holiday program.

Eligible families will receive their vouchers in their Service NSW app just like the Dine & Discover program with providers able to quickly scan the QR code on the spot or use the unique voucher code to redeem.
