We recognise that our families are busy and that children often want more social time to play with their school friends.  Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) is provided both before and after school for just this reason.

The OSHC program provides all of this as well as a safe, multi-aged, structured environment that helps children to develop physically, socially and emotionally in a supportive atmosphere.

At OSHC we offer a wide range of age appropriate experiences and activities catering to the strengths and interests of the children in our care.

OSHC at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish School is provided within the school grounds, which is convenient for families and safe for children. This also allows for communication between class teachers and OSHC staff regarding the welfare of your child.
