Our Lady Help of
Christians OSHC

Our Centre

At Our Lady Help of Christians (OLHC) we are committed to ensuring children are cared for in a welcoming, stimulating, safe environment that is sensitive to cultural diversity and inclusive of all families. We encourage children to develop positive peer relationships that foster their sense of well-being at the service.

Our program is developed in consultation with educators, educational leaders, children and families, with the aim of supporting the learning, growth and development of all children in our care. We understand that children are capable and active contributors in their own learning. Their voices contribute to developing a program that reflects their unique interests, strengths and abilities. This allows us to develop a holistic program that empowers each child to excel beyond their believed capabilities.
