Outside School Hours Care Program (Centacare)

Our motto is: “Keep Safe, Be Healthy, Have Fun”

Welcome to Our Lady Help of Christians Outside School Hours Care. We are managed by Centacare Child Care Services on behalf of the Corporation of Trustees of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane, and our service supports families and children within a Christian environment.

We provide a fun and safe environment for children to enjoy their time before and after school. We provide a healthy breakfast or afternoon tea, and plan a variety of craft, art, games, gardening, sports and play activities for childrens’ enjoyment and development.

We are based in our own room near the Prep Playground, but also make use of other school facilities as required.

We work within the Australian Government’s “My Time, Our Place” National Quality Framework to meet the following five Child Outcomes:

Children have a strong sense of identity

  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicatorsOur service is committed to continuous improvement, and we take a collaborative approach to this, with input from our children, parents, staff, Hendra Northgate Parish and the Our Lady Help of Christians Primary School community.Our service is licensed for 45 children, and registered for Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate funding.For more information, please contact Amber Boyle (Coordinator) on (07) 3268 6700 or at hendraoshc@bne.centacare.net.au
