About OOSH & Vacation Care Newcastle

At Newcastle OOSH & Vacation Care Group, our centres located in Merewether Heights, Glendale East and Mount Hutton, we have a team of dedicated and caring educators committed giving students the highest standard of care and nurturing available. 

We understand every child is an individual requiring different levels of care. Our Newcastle OOSH programs have been created with that in mind, with compassionate staff members working hard to bring out the best in each child we care for. 

Parents can feel assured their children will enjoy physical, mental and artistic activities in our childcare programs. Our aim is to inspire and motivate your child through adventurous play and fun indoor and outdoor activities. 

Our educators are qualified to care for children from 4 to 12 years of age. Trained in first aid and the treatment of asthma and anaphylaxis, we hold up-to-date registrations with child protection services and are cleared to work with children. 

If you’re looking for an affordable OOSH centre in the Newcastle region, call us today for enrolment enquiries.
