Woden Community Service (WCS) provides quality before school for children from Kindergarten to Year 6 and after school and school holiday programs for children in Preschool to year 6.

Curtin OSHC aims to provide a safe and caring environment with recreation based activities that allow for choice, spontaneity and flexibility. At Curtin OSHC, our programs celebrate diversity and recognise that play, fun, and humour are vital to school age care. Our educators also recognise the importance of building respectful relationships with children, families, the community and the environment.

Before School Care

Our Before School Care program caters for children in Kindergarten to Year 6. We serve a nutritious breakfast and offer inside and outdoor activities to engage your child’s brain as they start their day.

The programs operates out of Patterson Hall. Our educators escort Kindergarten children to lines. All other children make their way from the hall to lines.

Junior After School Care

Our Junior After School Care program caters for children Preschool to Year 2. We serve a nutritious snack for afternoon tea and offer an inclusive environment with a focus on building children’s social skills, resilience and connection to their world.

The program operates out of the main school hall. Our educators collect the children from Curtin South Preschool and the Kindergarten classroom and walk with them to the school hall.

Seniors After School Care

Our Seniors After School Care program caters for children in years 3 – 6. We serve a nutritious snack for afternoon tea and offer an inclusive environment with a focus on building children’s social skills, resilience and sustainability.

Our after school care programs allow for regular interactions between the Juniors and Seniors program, which we believe helps to build relationships and a sense of community.

School Holiday Program

Our School Holiday Program at Curtin Primary is for for children in Preschool to Year 6. Each school holidays, we aim to provide a blend of excursions, incursions and in-service activities. We believe this caters for all families and mimics a home like environment. We serve a nutritious snack for afternoon tea and ask families to provide morning tea and lunch for their child.

The educational program and list of activities offered are available on the Monday of week 6 of each school term.

Program: curtin_spring_shp_2021. 

Bookings for the Spring September/October 2022 School Holiday Program open at 10 am on Monday 22nd August 2022.
