Our School - OSHC

The Trinity Gardens Out of School Hours Care & Vacation Care programs are an important service available to our community. We are a not-for-profit organisation and the Trinity Gardens School Governing Council is the sponsoring body of our service. The programs are licensed by the Department of Education & ChildDevelopment.

Our goal is to provide well-balanced, quality childcare in a safe, friendly environment that meets the needs of all children, parents and the community, at an affordable rate.

We aim to provide a program developmentally appropriate to the leisure needs of the children attending the service and provide for the development of each child's social, physical, emotional and intellectual potential, including language skills and creativity.

Children, families and OSHC educators will be actively involved in all program planning, implementation and evaluation processes.

We provide a nutritious afternoon snack during After School Care & Vacation Care at approximately 3.45pm.

We are located in the school hall (in between the ovals, off of Devitt Avenue).


The programs are available to children who attend Junior Primary or Primary School and we are able to children from the ELC attend. This requires a lower child to educator ratio so bookings are essential.

An Enrolment form must be completed before children attend the service and parents / carers are responsible for updating any changes to details.

The service is staffed each day according to the number of children booked in & is based on Licensing and Standards requirements. We therefore need to be notified of bookings as soon as possible & cancellations must be made the day prior to avoid being charged for the session.

 Vacation Care: Bookings will not be guaranteed without a deposit and any overdue account balances must be paid before new bookings will be accepted.
