OSHC PROGRAM

OSHC is Novita’s Out of School Hours Care for young people living with disability. OSHC runs after school hours (after school care) and also during the school holidays (vacation care).

What is OSHC?

Young people who come along to our OSHC program get involved in lots of activities like cooking, arts and crafts, science, physical activities, music, dance, drama and excursions.

Our OSHC staff are friendly, highly trained and understand that each young person has individual needs and interests.

We learn the personal interests and emotional needs of each young person to make sure they get the most out of OSHC and most importantly, enjoy themselves. The program encourages a sense of self, exposing young people to new experiences in a safe, caring and relaxing environment.
