The Red Shed OSHC

The Red Shed OSHC provides Out of School Hours Care for children aged 4**-13 years.

The staff at The Red Shed are committed to fostering the development of self-esteem and confidence in our children. We respect the individual needs of children and families and promote open communication at all times. We believe that the activities offered during the Before and After School and Vacation Care programs should have a recreational focus while producing educational outcomes. We believe that children’s physical and emotional development is enhanced by healthy eating habits and the provision of a clean and safe environment. We believe that ongoing assessment of policies and procedures is essential in providing a quality service. We understand that children thrive in an environment where staff are happy and work well as a team, providing clear and consistent expectations and consequences.

Our philosophy is in keeping with the Marryatville Primary School vision and guiding principles of Build Community, Ambition with Honour and Enjoy Learning.
