CatholicCare OOSH - St Therese is staffed by a dedicated team of education professionals who are university trained early childhood teachers or TAFE trained Diploma educators who support and respect the uniqueness and individuality of children and their families. Our goal is to ensure that educators support and facilitate children’s social skills and self-confidence.
Our educators collaborate with children to provide play and leisure opportunities that are meaningful to them and that support their wellbeing, learning and personal development. Children in school age care settings are challenged to be curious about what is of interest to them while at the same time developing self-identity and social competencies (taken from MY TIME, OUR PLACE Framework for School Age Care in Australia).
The day to day operations of CatholicCare OOSH - St Therese is managed by a Coordinator and supported by an OOSH Manager.
We encourage positive learning experiences during snack times where good food habits are developed in a happy, social environment. Snacks provided are healthy, balanced and varied. The services have a strict no nut policy and no nut products will be served or eaten at the services. We can further accommodate a number of dietary requirements ie. gluten free, dairy free etc, so please speak to us about your child’s specific needs.

Before School Care: 6:30am – 9:00am
After School Care: 3:00pm – 6:30pm
