Philosophy

Glen Osmond Primary School OSHC service is dedicated to providing affordable, accessible and quality services to the families of the GOPS community. The OSHC services include both before and after school care. The service is assessed by the National Quality Framework, a system which became effective in 2012. The aims of the service are to provide a safe, educationally and emotionally enriching environment where children can learn confidence outside the home. Children learn to relate well with their peers, trust and respond to a variety of educators whilst they are assisted to understand and respect their own and other children’s cultural diversity. The service achieves this whilst stimulating children’s curiosity and engaging in fun and recreational experiences with educators supporting spontaneous play. All of the OSHC programs reflect the diversity of the GOPS community and are designed to meet the social, emotional and academic needs of children attending program activities at OSHC are designed by educators to meet the individual needs for children of diverse ages and developmental levels. They are developed following observation of interests and discussions with children and their families. All children are encouraged by educators to participate in a broad range of activities to develop coordination, expressive language and listening skills including, but not limited to: art, cooking, construction, computing, imaginary play, team games and sport. The fundamental aim is to foster each child’s pride and security in his/her identity while promoting awareness and respect and inclusion for all children.

This is achieved by the provision of an appropriate environment that is

  • Fun
  • Nurturing
  • Child-oriented
  • Collaborative
  • Facilitative of life-long learning through play-based experiences
