MOOSH uses the My Time, Our Place framework for school age care to guide programs that provide children with opportunities to maximise their potential and develop the foundations for future success. Working with the themes of Being, Belonging and Becoming MOOSH creates programs that aim to occupy, stimulate, extend and amuse. We provide a combination of planned and spontaneous activities both indoor and outdoor including crafts, sports, dramatic play, games, cooking and more. Provision is also made for those children who wish to do their homework, talk with educators, or just relax.

Optional breakfast is served daily from 7am – 8am and includes a choice of fruits, vegetables, grain and dairy. From 7am-8:40am children have a choice of indoor and outdoor play.
