Outside School Hours Care

Welcome to Burgmann Outside School Hours Care (OSHC)

Managed by Burgmann Anglican School, Burgmann OSHC aims to provide an inclusive, caring and educational environment which enables children to actively participate in educational, inquiry and play experiences, interact positively with peers and adults, as well as opportunities aimed at promoting resilience and independence through practical life skills and activities.

Children attending our programs are provided opportunities to participate in play-based indoor and outdoor activities and experiences. Children are able to develop and maintain friendships, enhance their imagination and curiosity, and further develop problem-solving, and exploration skills through programmed and spontaneous recreational and relaxation experiences.
