Double Bay Out of School hours Inc. is a community care centre for school children aged 5-12. During the school term period children attending Double Bay Public School utilise our service and during vacation care in school holidays we accept enrolments from the wider community.
We are an incorporated not-for-profit service overseen by a volunteer Double Bay school parent association, where membership is inclusive of all families registered with the centre.
The objectives of Double Bay Out of School Hours Inc. as defined in our constitution are:
a) To provide an out of school hours service (OSHC) which extends the play, creative and community engagement opportunities for children in our local community in their leisure time.
b) To collaborate with the local community and other agencies to address the varying needs and issues of the children and their families who attend the service, including children with a disability, children of different cultural, social, linguistic and economic backgrounds and those in isolated circumstances, all within a framework of social justice and reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
c) To promote and support the provisions of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child, in particular Article 12 (The Child’s Right to Express their Opinion) and Article 31 (The Child’s Right to Play and leisure Opportunities).
