Benefits of choosing OSC-NT

Our business model is based upon the observation that all parents wish for quality, safe, stimulating outside school care for their children – and know the difference when it is provided.

The benefits of choosing us to operate outside school care programs at your school include:

  • the knowledge that we operate to the highest standards and our teams are fully regulatory compliant

  • Flexibility. We offer After School (ASC)Before School (BSC) and Vacation Care (VAC) Programs for school age and pre-school children.
