Cobbler Creek Out of School Hours Care and Vacation Care is a Service located on the Golden Grove Primary School premesis. We cater predominanetly for Golden Grove Primary School, Pedare Junior Christian College and the local community.
We pride ourselves on providing meaningful and developmental experiences, which allow your child to extend their learning through play and social interactions. We strive to provide a high quality and professional OSHC service to meet the communitities' needs.
ART & CRAFT
Children are able to participate in a variety of Art and Craft experiences throughout the week. These range from painting, free making and multicultural activities. Please feel free to offer any suggestions.
Cooking activities are twice a week during OSHC time and everyday during Vacation Care. Children are able to participate in a cooking experience. Here they have the opportunity to learn valuable life skills. Recipes include both sweet and savoury and include foods from around the world.
ACTIVE AFTER SCHOOL SPORTS
Each term we participate in a Government Incentive Program to increase children's physical activities. We are involved in one to two sessions for 7 weeks each term. Some of the activities that we have participated in to date include Netball, Cricket, Golf, Athletics, Dance, Martial Arts and Lawn Bowls. This bares no extra cost to families and is a great way for children to experience a variety of sports.
HOMEWORK CLUB & iPAD ROOM
Due to families being busy with extracurricular activities after hours, we provide a quiet independent area for children to complete their homework with a leader supervising. Children who need to read to an adult will need to so in their home environment. After homework is finished we allow the children to place their name on a list to have a 10 minute turn of an iPad. There are various games on them including both fun and educational.
We are fortunate enough to have a variety of outside play spaces. We utilize the Pedare Christian College oval, playground and hard court as well as the Golden Grove Primary School oval and playground. When in these areas children engage in various physical activities such as soccer, basketball, football, cricket and free play.
This play space contains various building materials such as mobilo, lego, a home corner, as well as a Wii and Play Station 2. Children are able to play freely in this area and let their imagination run wild.
This is the 'Hub' of the service. While the children utilize this room to play board games, draw or colour a picture, it is where they are also signed in and out. The OSHC office is also located in the same building and this is where fees are payable. Communication books for parents can also be found here.
We offer a quiet movie room for the children to sit and relax after their day at school. We use the Golden Grove Primary School library and provide a choice of appropriate G or PG movies.
