Out of School Hours and Vacation Care

Welcome to Flinders Park Out of School Hours Care and Vacation Care.

The Flinders Park Primary School OSHC and Vacation Care holiday program is a child-focused program, which aims to provide children with a safe, fun and stimulating environment.

We treat all children and families as equal and valued individuals. All children are provided with opportunities that challenge and encourage them to develop their potential within a caring environment.

Your child’s safety and wellbeing is our priority, all our Educators are trained in CPR, First Aid and undertake training in Child Protection responsibilities. All Educators undergo a thorough background check prior to employment.
