Splash is a not-for-profit 140-place service. As a not-for-profit OOSH Service, we divest our financial surplus back into the educational program: learning resources, play equipment, and professional training. Moreover, our proceeds go towards developing Ashbury Public School's infrastructure. Splash's philosophy is centered around achieving quality outcomes for your children.
We pride ourselves on our collaborative partnerships with the community. Our service is managed by a 'Volunteer OOSH Parent Committee' on school grounds. Our service team liaises with the school to ensure that our pedagogical practices extend on each child's learning and development.
On a day-to-day basis, the centre is managed by our Director Justina and the 2IC when the Director is away from floor operations. The Splash children are supervised by an Authorised Supervisor (Responsible Person).
We offer accredited:
Before and After School Care during the school term (for Asbury Public School Children [APS])
Pupil Free Day Care on 'Staff Development Days' for APS and Saint Francis Xavier (SFX) Children
Vacation Care for APS and SFX Children
Our care caters to primary-aged children (Kindergarten to Year Six) in a safe physical environment that offers a diverse range of learning experiences.
