About the Service
Wanguri OSHC offers the Wanguri community Before & After school and Vacation care from pre-school to Grade 6.
At Wanguri OSHC, our primary purpose is to support growth, development and quality of life for our young people, their families and communities. We encourage children to think about OSHC as an extension to family and feel welcome and comfortable in their environment.
We seek to set up children for success by developing confident, self-reflective, compassionate and resilient future leaders.
Wanguri OSHC is managed as a partnership between Wanguri Primary School and Child Australia.
Child Australia Wanguri OSHC aims to provide safe, play-based programs for children in our school community. Our program goal is to positively enable all children to develop to their full potential.
We offer an environment where children are encouraged to foster friendships. We provide opportunities to develop social skills, leadership qualities, confidence and resilience.
We aim to foster the concept of ownership of our centre. Children are encouraged to share ideas and input into the program. Freedom of choice in experiences and experiences that encourage exploration and enquiry is balanced with an exciting program.
Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own behaviour through the understanding of the reasons we have rules, understanding the consequences for their actions and an understanding of how our actions and choices impact on others.
We believe that each child should be included and valued for their unique qualities and backgrounds. We encourage children to express their thoughts, needs and feelings as individuals.
We value our families and community and encourage the interest and involvement of parents to share in, contribute and feel part of their child’s experience at the centre. We believe that communication helps build partnerships with all our stakeholders.
We aim to foster awareness of our environment and community using sustainable practices, for example – using recycled materials and collecting funds for charities.
Any rules implemented at the service come from the core concept of RESPECT.
Our Vacation care program operates throughout the school holidays and offers exciting incursions and excursions.
The basis of our Vacation Care service is for the children to enjoy their holiday. We offer children opportunities to play and learn at their own pace, engage in experiences of interest, enjoy a new adventure and be challenged.
For more information please see the program published on our Facebook page 1 month prior to each vacation care period.
