St Kieran’s OSHC, Manly Vale
We pride ourselves in being a place for our children to share their experiences, manifest their thoughts, create their ideas, explore the imaginary, discover new ways, express their emotions and inspire new possibilities.
We believe every child is born an artist and it is our responsibility (educators, carers, teachers, parents and coaches) to help find their talent and stimulate their ability to think creatively. Our dedicated team of educators embrace diversity and we believe that each child is different and unique, and therefore able to contribute with the most diverse perspectives, which only enriches the quality of our program.
When children value diversity, they not only recognise and respect differences but they understand this is actually a really good thing. It represents more possibilities. We are proud of being known as the happiest classroom in the school where no one wants to leave.
Our Manly Vale OSCH is located on the school grounds of St Kieran’s Catholic Primary School. We provide:
- Before school care: 6.30am to 8.30am
- After school care: 2.50pm to 6.00pm
Immersed in a culture of happiness, inclusion, trust, affection, positive attitude, creativity, joy and profound respect for the human being with all its manifestations and differences, we fill our mornings and afternoons with lots of arts and crafts, literature, story telling, puppet theatre, music, dancing and singing, sports, games, relaxation, baking and gardening.
