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 by physically active play, or to relax or to do homework!  Our facilities include a large gated outdoor nature play space, 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 7:30am and afternoon tea after school. We offer a range of healthy fresh and cooked foods for our summer and winter menus.
