Welcome to All Hallows Out of School Hours, known fondly as OOSH.
OOSH is a non-profit, self-funding service provided by the school community, primarily for children attending All Hallows Parish School, Five Dock. OOSH is managed by a group of parents, the Parent Committee, who employ a Coordinator and other dedicated staff to provide quality care. OOSH assists families by providing care during out of school hours in a secure, friendly, and inspiring environment.
At All Hallows OOSH we believe that childhood is a special time; where PLAY, feeling SAFE and being happy is the right of every child.
Play at OOSH provides children with the opportunity to have FUN in their time out of school.
The foundation of our QUALITY service is built through the CARING and respectful relationships that are formed between the staff, children, families, the school and the local COMMUNITY. We promote these partnerships and embrace DIVERSITY as we recognise the influence they have in creating a unique culture that benefits the lives of our children.
Our AWESOME, INCLUSIVE atmosphere allows children to explore and ‘choose their own adventure’ or engage in exciting, experiences planned based on their interests. Through these, children form FRIENDSHIPS, build social skills and become responsible members of the school aged community.
Above all, they become FAMILY.
All Hallows OOSH is place where children can come together
– to PLAY and have FUN!
OOSH – Their Time, Their Place.
All Hallows Out Of School Hours Care has been assessed against the National Quality Standard for Early Childhood Education and Care and School Age Care and has been rated as EXCEEDING. Our service will continue to collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure the delivery of high quality care and education.
The staff to child ratio is 1 to 15 children (1 to 8 on excursions). The staff on duty will vary according to the number of children registered on a particular day. Two educators are required as a minimum at all times.
