South Coogee Out of School Hours Care (OOSH)
South Coogee Children’s Services is a not for profit community based service located on the grounds of South Coogee Public School. We are operated by a volunteer Parent Management Committee comprising of parents representing both our services. We are an Out Of School Hours (OOSH) Care Centre catering for children aged 5 – 12 years. This service is licensed to accommodate 155 children for before school care and after school care in term time and for Vacation Care during school holiday periods and pupil free days. We have recently increased our numbers to meet the high demand of families needing our service!

South Coogee OOSH offers a variety of programmed activities that focus on the five learning outcomes of the My Time Our Place, National Quality Framework. We are focused on the diversity of children, their interests and their learning styles. For this reason we offer structured activities around the following areas:
- Art and craft
- Sports and Games
- Creative arts; dramatic play, dancing, music and creative writing
- Yoga and meditation
- Board games and card games
In addition to these structured activities, children have the opportunity for self-directed play and to practice independence. Free drawing, self-generated games, outdoor playing, the sandpit, the reading corner and the home corner are some of the ways the children can choose their own direction at OOSH. We encourage all children to partake in long-term back-wall projects where they can contribute to the development of the display.
