St Francis Xavier's Outside School Hours Care support's the child's physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs in a safe and caring Catholic environment.

Our service recognises the importance of play and recreation. The National Framework for School Age Care, My Time Our Place, guides our practice. We offer recreational experiences, both age-appropriate and child-initiated that challenges and supports the uniqueness of each child.

We welcome, consider and value open discussions and feedback on all issues relevant to the Service's operation. We acknowledge, celebrate and incorporate the multiculturalism and diversity of our community, thus widening the child's view of the world.

We work in partnership with families to support their role as the primary caregivers and principal educators of their children.

We strive to be a place of much fun and laughter.
