Woronora River  OSHC

On the grounds of Woronora River Public school, the Woronora River out-of-school hours care (OSHC) is housed in the building to the right of the school's entrance. Our environment provides children with ample opportunities for outdoor natural play, where they can enjoy the fresh air, play sports such as tennis on the school's tennis court, and experience riverside adventures, just one minute from school; activities that only a few services have the opportunity to enjoy.


Woronora River (OSHC) educates and cares for children K-6 from Woronora River Public School. It operates 5 days per week, 7am to 9am and 3:15pm to 6pm, 40 weeks per year (excluding public holidays). We also offer Vacation Care for school holiday periods, from 7am to 6pm at our local Bonnet Bay OSHC vacation care.

Our qualified educators incorporate the “My Time Our Place Framework”, encouraging children to choose between exploring, experimenting, being active or finding a quiet area to read a book or just be. Our program provides for all children of all abilities. The program includes a nutritious afternoon tea, craft, science, computer games, group games, and sport. We also provide an extension to the school curriculum by supporting children with their homework or school projects.


We recognise that children's comfort and well-being extend beyond meeting the children’s basic needs. For that reason, we use Maslow's hierarchy of needs as a framework to ensure that children are supported beyond their basic and survival needs. We implement the 5 tiers of the pyramid, beginning with meeting the children's basic needs and ending with motivating them to be the best they can be (the pyramid's top).
