Plan A Visit
If you are enrolling your child for the first time at OSHC or at Holiday Program, you are welcome to arrange a visit to the site before your child begins. This can be an opportunity for both you and your child to see the space and learn about how OSHC works. Please contact us to make a suitable time.
SPW OSHC welcomes family involvement in the service. OSHC staff are happy to speak with parents/caregivers about a child’s needs or experiences at OSHC or Holiday Program, and to receive any feedback. Please email Jesse McMahon OSHC Coordinator, or call 8295 4317 (ext 5).
OSHC Holiday Program
SPW facilitate a Holiday Program each school holiday break. Our new SPW OSHC team will lead the Holiday Program which provides a variety of engaging, fun-filled activities, all with an educational foundation. At the same time, the service remains as affordable as possible for our families.
The OSHC Holiday Program caters for children from Foundation to Year 7 and accepts children from both SPW and other schools.
