Date Posted: July 28, 2022


This Service acknowledges the Dharawal people as the Traditional Custodians of the land on which it sits. They value and celebrate Dharawal culture and language, and acknowledge Dharawal people’s continuing connection to the land, the sea and community. They pay respect to the Elders and their families, past, present and emerging, and through them, to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

If you have lots of OSHC experience and are now ready to step into a Coordinator role in a small, but growing, Service in a lovely location, we’d love to chat to you!
Working as a key part of a supportive management structure, and with a stable and committed team of Educators on board, this is a great opportunity to work closely with the school and community to maintain and grow a warm, fun, inclusive, and encouraging environment for the children who attend Outside School Hours Care in Waterfall, NSW.
This Not-For-Profit Service uses a classroom at a small, local Primary School, where they run a friendly and welcoming Before and After School Care Programme for up to 19 children. They have a dedicated private office, kitchen facilities, and plenty of storage space to be able to run a fun programme.
The Service is part of a small group run by one Approved Provider which provides excellent support for its teams, including an Area Manager and a Compliance Manager who are there to help with all the tricky stuff around writing the QIP, doing self-assessment, handling A&R, etc.  They are also very keen on developing their staff and promoting from within. So, if you ever had the thought of taking on a head office position one day, this could be the place to start!
In order to attract committed Education and Care professionals to their team, this Service will pay well above award wages depending on experience and qualifications.
