Disability&NDIS afterschool programs banner

CatholicCare has partnered with St Gabriel’s to offer an after school and vacation care service 

This service is specifically designed to cater for the additional needs of children attending St Gabriel’s school with a ratio of support typically 3 times higher than a standard OSHC. Our team of educators also have extensive experience in disability support as well as mainstream OSHC operations. As an onsite OSHC, we work closely with school teachers and other St Gabriel’s staff to ensure practices and support strategies are reflected consistently. As a registered OSHC, we adhere to best practice industry standards and operate according to current NSW regulations. The service is also registered to operate under the Child Care Subsidy scheme.

  • Our after school program runs 3.00 – 6.00pm on school days.
  • Our vacation care program is open 8.30am – 4.00pm Monday to Friday during school holidays. Our July 2024 program is available here.

We encourage families seeking access to the vacation care program to attend the OSHC service at least one afternoon a week throughout the school term so the children can get to know the educators and program.
