About Us


Truscott Street OOSH and Vacation Care offers centre based care for primary aged children. Before and after school care operates during school terms and vacation care operates all day during selected days in the school holidays and some pupil free days.

The Centre operates for 50 weeks a year, closing for two weeks over the December holidays. The Centre aims to create a safe and caring environment where children can freely choose amongst a program of activities.

The Centre is currently licensed for 95 children during before and after school care and vacation care, and is operated by Truscott Street Public School Parents and Citizens’ Association Inc. Truscott Street OOSH is located within the grounds of Truscott Street Public School, in the block closest to and running parallel to Edmondson Street.

The Centre indoor areas include a dedicated classroom and kitchen, plus the school hall. The Centre outdoor areas include possum cove, top grass (school oval) with play equipment and smart grass courts.

The Centre was given a final overall rating of ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard.  We are committed to continuous improvement so we are able to provide a high quality service to our children, families and the community.
