At Hughes Out of School Hours Care (OSHC), Woden Community Service (WCS) provides quality before school care for children in Kindergarten to Year 6 and after school care for children in Preschool to Year 6.
Hughes OSHC provides a play-based learning environment where children can exercise their social, emotional, physical and spiritual health domains to develop holistically in their social environment. Each morning and afternoon, we offer children a wide range of activities including art, physical activity, reading, games and cooking. These engage their creative and critical thinking skills while showing personal and social responsibility in a supportive and inclusive environment. Educators and children work collectively to solve real-life challenges and experience positive interactions as part of the wider school community.
