The Sheidow Park School OSHC/Vacation Care provides quality care for school aged children and operates within all the regulatory and legislative requirements, including the National Quality framework and My Time Our Place framework.

We ensure that all experiences offered to children in our care meet these outcomes and guidelines.

Our commitment is to meet the needs of individual children in our care, their parents, caregivers and the community, through a continuous improvement plan.

The program is set in a safe and supported environment, encouraging the learning and development of individual children, whilst encouraging positive attitudes, value of play, self-esteem, respect for others and responsibility.

We encourage appropriate behaviour of children by helping them connect to their world through collaborative learning opportunities, discussion and positive reinforcement.

To ensure that we are tailoring activities to suit our children, Educators activities are programmed to engage with children, as well as, build and maintain positive, respectful and meaningful relationships.

Through our diverse program, we aim to meet and respect the cultural and individual strengths and capabilities of all children in our care, by reflecting and evaluating their learning and development.

Our goal is to offer a safe, welcoming, fun and creative program that provides children with the opportunity to develop friendships, become effective communicators, experience life skills, and develop their self-esteem.
