Out of school hours care (OSHC)

Salisbury Heights Primary School OSHC is an accredited child care service catering for Before School, After School and Vacation Care periods. 

Our friendly staff offer a safe, comfortable and caring environment where children feel they can belong and grow as individuals. Our programs offer play based, age appropriate learning experiences that are drawn from the children’s interests and needs.  Activities on offer involve various learning experiences in the field of physical activities and challenges, art and crafts, cooking, construction, drama and imaginative play, outdoor and nature-based activities, cultural and science activities, various group games and IT options. 

Various spaces are available for children to play outdoors or indoors, whether it be physically active play, or to relax or to do homework!  Our facilities include a large gated outdoor playground, various indoor play spaces including a wet area, kitchens, quiet area and a media room. We also use the school grounds, outdoor play spaces and the School Hall.

We provide breakfast before 8.15am. We also offer a range of healthy fresh foods for Afternoon tea daily.

Bookings and cancellations

Children who do not have a booking will not be able to attend OSHC. 

Permanent or casual bookings can be made on the online system, however for casual bookings with less than three days notice we require families to contact OSHC by phone (8281 1700), so OSHC staff can ensure that we have places and appropriate staffing available.

Cancellations made with more than two weeks notice for Before and After School Care sessions, and more than one weeks notice for Vacation Care sessions, will not incur a fee. However any less than the above stated time frames and the same session fees will apply.

Please arrange a meeting with OSHC leadership if you have specific requirements for your child.
