Pedare Christian College Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) and Vacation Care

The Pedare Christian College OSHC educators would like to welcome all families & children to our service. We are proud to offer the Pedare community with support in caring and contributing to children’s growth and development. Children’s health and safety is our top priority and our educators will practise active supervision at all times.

Pedare OSHC provides children with a choice of supervised play areas which are designed to meet their needs and support their interests.

In our OSHC room, children have access to a wide range of games, crafts, and books, as well as bean bags, pillows, and blankets for rest and relaxation. The OSHC room also hosts our OSHC Café. Children are provided with a variety of fruits, drinking water, skim milk, and a weekly menu influenced by The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating from the Department of Health website.

We offer a supervised homework room, which is a quiet space dedicated to completing homework tasks with support from an educator.

The Pedare Junior School playground is available for all children to play on throughout the session. In this space, educators influence safe play behaviour.

Other outdoor areas include the undercover deck, the exterior foyer, and the oval, which will host a range of active games such as water-play activities, group games, and sports games.

The Pedare OSHC is available to all children from Reception to Year 6.
