OSHC

Para Vista OSHC is an Out of Hours Care program offered by the Para Vista Governing Council. The service provides high quality recreational care for preschool-age and school-age children. In accordance with the school and community needs the service provides: Before School Care, After School Care, Pupil Free Days and Vacation Care. A variety of indoor and outdoor spaces are accessed by the children and offer safe, stimulating and caring environments for them to explore, create, experiment and express themselves. Children are encouraged to contribute to the program.

We aim for a service that is affordable, accessible and addresses the needs of families in the local community. We encourage all parents to participate in the service and we respect families’ rights to have a voice in the decision making. Feedback from children, parents and community resource groups help us to continually improve. Para Vista School Governing Council is the License Holder for the centre. The centre has an OSHC Committee which reports to the Governing Council. Parents are welcomed to participate in the OSHC Committee and are encouraged to give input on all aspects of OSHC matters.
