    Outside School Hours Care jobs
    A LIFESTYLE CHOICE
    Flexibility and Lifestyle

    Before and After School Care Shifts are generally 7am – 9am, and 2.30pm – 6pm (programs may differ) delivering flexibility for people to do what they need to do during the day. Vacation Care shifts also available.

    You'll enjoy an enviable lifestyle. You don’t need to talk about the work-life balance, you are literally living it. Exercise, swim, catch up with friends and family, study, shop, housework…or even catch a movie in the middle of the day.

    Fun

    Outside of School Hours (also known as OOSH, or Before and After School Care) is a play-based environment, allowing educators to develop strong relationships with children and families.

    You'll be delivering engaging programs that include activities based on children’s interests - craft and creativity projects, science exploration, construction using recycled and loose part objects, small group games and physical skills games.

    Career

    Working in OSHC also offers opportunity for a long term, rewarding career. 

    Here at Gowrie NSW, we are committed to supporting you in your career aspirations. We do this by offering mentorship, access to free professional development courses, clear pathways of progression and offering a strong study support policy.

    ‘I started a job at a local OSHC at the same time as I started uni. My shifts work around my uni timetable, and I am able to work a 9 shift week and get to all my lectures and tutes. I love working at OSHC because no two days are the same, I’m never bored, and I can live my life at the same time' Kelly, 19
