The Marian OSHC is a care facility nestled in the heart of the Currajong region. Providing exceptional outside of school hours care, Marian OSHC is situated on the main road leading into the CBD.
We operate our care centre out of the first classroom built for the Christian Brothers College, constructed back in 1952. We are very proud to have access to a beautiful, charming and historical setting and regularly integrate our facility's bloodlines into our sessions.
Marian OSHC offers a large, open and airy centre with an abundance of character and charm. The indoor spaces are interactive, engaging, and surrounded by an undercover hall, basketball courts, a sandpit, green ovals, and beautiful gardens. The Marian OSHC offers a secure, sun-smart and adventurous space that encourages a child's naturally inquisitive and explorative nature.
Exceptional Outside of School Hours Care
With a capped capacity of 150 children, our educators are passionate about delivering quality care to each and every single child. We endeavour to provide fun, supportive experiences that are built on nurturing the individuality of each child's interests.
The Marian OSHC centre is built on strong relationships with the school, the community and the local Parish. We celebrate the Catholic faith through prayer and activities, promoting kindness, compassion and empathy in every session with the children. We offer complete outside school hours care, before school hours care and vacation care. We also provide care for children on pupil free days.
