Our educators are child care specialists, who have a passion for working in OSHC. They see their work as more than just a job and are committed to a long-term career with us. Our team is comprised of Early Childhood Teachers, Teachers, Integration Aides and other suitably qualified professionals, whose diversity and skill set add enormous value to each service.
Many of our team members have been with us since we started and we are proud to say we have the lowest staff turnover rate in the industry. Our educators are truly valued, as they are consistently kept engaged and highly appreciated. This means that you will see a team of trusted and familiar faces caring for your children each time you use our service.
Our staff are carefully screened before employment and highly trusted to take care of children. Every employee must hold a current Working With Childrens Check, relevant qualifications and must undergo a robust induction process with us before working at a service. We provide our staff with outstanding support to complete the essential role of caring for your child.
Thank you for entrusting the care of your child to us. The primary school years are so important and as such I have committed over twenty years of my life to ensure that every child has access to the best before school, after school and holiday care there is.
As a father of four children myself, I understand first-hand the child care needs of busy families and always aim to view our services from the eyes of a parent. As a former educator before starting this company, my wife Sian (a teacher) and I, regularly draw on our hands-on experience to show our team what quality and fun care looks like.
Schools who partner with us will know that we have a culture within this company to provide services which goes above and beyond providing OSHC. I’m all about supporting schools and organisations both practically as well as financially, to help them achieve their child-focussed goals.
There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child’s face light up or hearing the sound of laughter at our centres. We are confident that your child will love the time they spend with us!
