Childcare Services

Our Children Services Team are passionate leaders giving developing young minds the opportunity to learn, grow and have fun outside of school. Across 53 schools in NSW, our team of OSHC Educators and Coordinators provide before and after school (and school holiday) care that’s dedicated to the safety and development of young children. Every day, the team facilitates and run a range of valuable programs and activities that include sport, creative arts, cooking – and many more. These roles work closely with children, parents, and teachers alike, to provide meaningful opportunities for young people within a healthy, safe, and inclusive environment. If you’re a driven, dedicated leader who brings energy and enthusiasm to everything you do, you’ll find the support and flexibility to explore a promising career in childcare or education
