St Nicholas OOSH

St Nicholas OOSH East Maitland provides before and after school care in a fun, safe, supportive and inclusive environment onsite at St Joseph's Primary School, where children between the ages of 5-12 can play, explore, be creative and use their imagination.  

St Nicholas’ highly qualified and friendly staff work in partnership with children, families and the St Joseph's community to provide opportunities for children to engage in quality experiences with other children in order to foster friendships and promote active citizenship. St Nicholas OOSH is a place where all children can play, grow and develop together. 


St Nicholas OOSH’s programs incorporate the children’s voices to provide play and leisure activities that are meaningful and support each child’s wellbeing, learning and development.  

In addition to providing before and after school care, St Nicholas OOSH offers vacation care during school holidays. Vacation care includes a variety of engaging incursion and excursion activities designed to provide your child with fond memories that will last a lifetime.
