Kidzone OSHC Philosophy and Goals

Kidzone OSHC is a child focused program where the rights of the child are paramount. We are a Christian service that encourages children to be all they can be in life and in God. We aim to include all children, families and educators in an equitable and valued manner by building reciprocal and respectful relationships.

Our Vision is to provide a physically and emotionally supportive setting where children feel safe and valued and can therefore reach their full potential through the use of play-based learning. We also strive to educate and provide children with healthy eating information and opportunities.
