licensing

We are currently licensed for 105 children both before and after school care for all children aged from Kindy to year 6.

A high priority of the Centre is to maintain the safety and welfare of all children, staff and families.

We are a high quality service with an amazing environment in which children can have fun, freely choose amongst a program of activities which integrate education, health, safety, nutrition and that foster all aspects of children's development. Samuel Gilbert OOSH is an environment where children can play, learn, explore, discover, socialise and where staff are professional, and families and the community are valued and included.

Our programs foster independence, nurture children's  imagination, interests and abilities. Our community involvement is evident throughout our program and we strive to build partnerships both locally and within the wider community.
