Our Lady of the Rosary OSHC, Waitara


We have a great team of wonderful educators that ensure our children are happy and engaged during the time they spend with us. Our focus is on our children, listening to their stories and developing opportunities to explore their interests. Our children are encouraged to form a club if they have a group with common interests. This may be a science club or a cooking club or a soccer club. We provide extension activities to feed the children’s knowledge and passions.


Our Waitara Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) is located on the grounds of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School. We provide:

  • Before school care: 7.00am to 9.00am
  • After school care: 3.00pm to 6.00pm
  • Vacation care hours: 7.30am to 6.00pm

Every day we have games, sport and craft and children can choose any activity they like. We can accommodate just about any interest. Our feedback system allows children to share their suggestions and this becomes the basis for our programming.
