PORTSIDE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE OUT OF SCHOOL HOURS CARE
Welcome to Portside Christian College Out of School Hours Care (OSHC). OSHC operates for a minimum of 48 weeks per year and includes Before and After School Care, care on College closure days and Vacation Care.
We are aware of the pressure on families and the importance of providing a safe and caring environment outside of school hours. Our service provides a warm and caring environment where students can flourish under the guidance of qualified staff. Our program includes indoor and outdoor activities along with excursions as part of our Vacation Care program.
The OSHC program runs on a regular routine:
Free play time
Children’s choice of indoor and outdoor activities
Parents can book to use the OSHC service via Storypark.
Our program is ‘The Emergent Curriculum’, a non-traditional style of teaching that presents children with the gift
of discovering the world around them by encouraging them to explore life through their own interests and
This is child-led or child-based learning as opposed to ‘teacher directed learning’.
Topics will be expressed in the program. Please be encouraged to express an area of interest your child may desire to explore via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our utmost to include your ideas.
Through the ACECQA Framework’s five learning outcomes, educators will assist your child to develop:
• a strong sense of their identity
• connections with their world
• a strong sense of wellbeing
• confidence and involvement in their learning
• effective communication skills.
