At Red Hill Primary School, Woden Community Service (WCS) provides quality before school, after school and school holiday programs for children in Preschool to Year 6.

Red Hill OSHC has been a part of the Red Hill Primary School community for many years. Our service is built on strong foundations of mutual respect and a passion for working with children. Across each of our programs, passionate, enthusiastic and caring educators work together to create an environment that is welcoming, educational and engaging. Our highly experienced team aim to create a program that is thoughtful and purpose driven, while learning and growing with families and responding to the ever evolving needs of our local community. This ensures Red Hill OSHC continues to be a place where children are included, feel safe and have fun.

Open communication between our educators and families informs continuous improvement at each of our programs. We believe that setting clears and consistent high expectations for children and having a well established routine contributes to children and families feeling safe, secure and supported. At Red Hill OSHC we understand that when children feel a sense of belonging, their confidence grows and they are empowered to learn and thrive.
