We provide quality before and after Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) for families of pre-school and primary school age children, from 4 to 12 years of age. We provide services across Canberra – see the links below for details.

Our OSHC services provide children with recreation-based activities that emphasise social interaction and a sense of fun in a safe and secure environment. We offer a range of activities including crafts, sports, games, dramatic play, cooking and excursions. 

Many OSHC services also provide a school holiday program. For more information, see School Holiday Programs or the details for the location below. 

All bookings for OSHC services are through the My Family Lounge app. For more information on registering for or using My Family Lounge, see Enrolments.
