Philosophy

Camp Hill OSHC aims to provide a program that caters to every child through an emergent curriculum. Our program is focused on children’s interests, through inquiry based learning opportunities, developing a sense of belonging and identity in the OSHC community, and establishing trusting relationships with other children and educators. We continue to have strong connections with our Bendigo community, promote sustainability practices, and we celebrate diversity and inclusion. We form partnerships with our families and maintain open communications with each of them.

Program

Our Program nurtures the development of life skills and complements children’s experiences, through an emergent curriculum. Every child is supported and encouraged to participate in the program. Through observations, educator jottings and documented learning stories and reflections, Educators are able to respond to the children’s individual interests, and implement opportunities for children to extend and develop their inquiry based learning experiences.

The service also offers afternoon tea each day, based on the children’s input and likes incorporating a wide and varied healthy choice menu.
