About OSHC

Redwood Park OSHC and VAC is a child focused service providing a safe and welcoming environment where children’s knowledge, interests and abilities are promoted. This occurs by providing challenging opportunities through play and spontaneous and planned activities that are flexible and inclusive of children’s learning. We strive to foster children’s full potential and wellbeing by encouraging restorative justice which develops problem solving, self-regulation, self-esteem, respect and responsibility. Through the role modeling of professional educators we aim to work towards a sustainable environment for all children and their families.

We aim to build a collaborative community for staff, children, families and the school so as to foster respectful and meaningful relationships which recognises diversity and equality. As a service we operate according to this philosophy and try to reflect the local community through discussion and inviting participation around issues relevant to running the service. Our program revolves around the outcomes stated in My Time Our Place. Children, families and staff are consulted to plan and implement programs that engage and challenge all children.

See our current  Quality Improvement Plan and our goals for this year.

We are continually looking to improve our practises, communication with families and documentation of children’s learning. We would like to enhance this documentation of learning by offering the ‘Seesaw’ app to provide photos and information about your child’s learning to your mobile or tablet devices.
