Cardiff OOSH & VC

Cardiff OOSH & VC is located from within Cardiff Public School providing Before School, After School and Vacation Care services. Cardiff OOSH & VC is our largest and very first Care Activities service.  We have been assessed as Meeting Quality Standards and is licenced for 90 children each day. During the school terms, in addition to our Cardiff Public School children we also drop off and collect from Cardiff South Public School on our OOSH bus. Our Vacation Care service provides care to any families who wish to join us. 

We utilise our trained staff, the school’s outside play area, our OOSH room, and the OOSH garden to effortlessly provide a safe and caring environment with fun activities for the children. A nutritious afternoon tea is served daily.

We use a weekly reflection tool to develop into the next week’s programming so that children always have an input into the program, and it is filled with their current and ongoing interests.

We offer Before and After School Care as well as Vacation Care throughout school Holidays. 

In the lead up to Vacation Care, we ask children and families for suggestions for what they would like to on our program, this helps us maintain family input but also to ensure the days are filled with activities that will engage the children’s interest and support their social learnings. 

Entry is via Russell Street, Cardiff. We have our spacious two room OOSH that allows multiple resources and areas to be set up to encourage different types of learning and interactions. We use this space as well as the outside areas.
