Our Lady of Good Counsel OSHC, Forestville


Our dedicated team of educators care about creating an environment where each child feels welcome and encouraged to experiment and grow. We provide a range of activities so that each child can engage in something they are interested in.

We structure our activities around the interests of the children so if there’s something that a child wants to explore, we facilitate that opportunity. Central to this is creating strong relationships with the children. We focus on getting to know each child, their interests and hobbies, so that we can provide the best possible care and the children feel comfortable. We pride ourselves on knowing the children that we care for.


Our Forestville OSHC is located on the school grounds of Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Primary School. We provide:

  • Before school care: 7.00am to 9.00am
  • After school care: 2.30pm to 6.00pm
  • Vacation care: 7.30am to 6.00pm
  • Pupil free day care: 7.30am to 6.00pm (can be arranged if there is sufficient interest from parents.)

Throughout our different programs we offer a variety of activities including sports, craft, imaginative play, painting, music, active play, art, board games … and whatever the children can imagine!
