Our Philosophy

oshc-philosophy

Pymble OSHC is committed to the provision of high-quality care and education. We achieve this by:

  1. Facilitating a smooth transition from the school day to the complementary setting of the OSHC.
  2. Creating a learning environment that is informed both by the My Time, Our Place – Framework for School Age Care in Australia and the College’s core values of Care, Courage, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility. The services we provide are focused on the following:

BELONGING

Knowing where, and with whom you belong.

BEING

Recognising the significance of the here and now.

BECOMING

Emphasising learning through play as a key to participating fully and actively in society.

  1. Employing trusted, credentialed educators who provide a safe environment for children. The high staff-to-child ratio gives educators ample time to assist with homework, to develop activities that reflect the interests of the children and to implement programs that promote their Wellbeing.
  1. Supplying quality resources in sufficient quantities. This enables all children to engage in the activities of their choice. A wide variety of play spaces including playgrounds, soft fall spaces and indoor and outdoor sectors allows children to participate in a range of supervised activities where they can interact, develop skills and cultivate an appreciation of their natural and built environments.
  1. Building positive relationships with parents – who we acknowledge as children’s first educators – with open and effective communications that respect and value diversity of culture.
