"Gowrie OSHC Erskineville is an awesome before and after-school centre. The staff is super friendly and supportive. They have created a great educational and entertaining program, developing a new schedule every week with several activities to choose from on a daily basis (e.g., art, cooking, games, sport etc.). The team has provided amazing support during the COVID lockdown and a safe place for our kid to have a bit of a normal life. Our little one is so excited to go to Gowrie OSHC Erskineville every day.

Joel Appleyard

Hi, I’m Joel, and I’ve been working as a Manager within the OSHC Sector for 8 years now. During my time, I’ve worked in various communities, across QLD, VIC and most recently, in Sydney NSW.

I believe all programs should build upon the unique potential of children, through play-based learning, risk-dynamic considerations, and a driven educator-team. I’m passionate about the delivery of quality services that are developed to support children as individuals, and creating a service culture that establishes an appetite for change, quality improvement and a ‘give it a go’ attitude. 

Have a question? We'd love to help.
