St Patrick’s OSHC, East Gosford

Welcome

Our dedicated team of educators strive to ensure the best possible outcomes for your children whilst attending our service. Even if your children are only casuals at our centre, our staff provide a safe and welcoming environment for all children to be in.

Our service currently averages 10 – 20 children each session which enables our educators to really get to know the children and what they enjoy in life. We regularly speak to them as a group to understand what the children want at our OSHC. OSHC is a priority for working families. Our goal is to have the children love coming here due to our fantastic program and caring educators.
