Acknowledgement of Country

Tuggerah Out Of School Hours Care acknowledges that we are on Darkinjung Country and pay our respects to the elders, past and present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and the hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the state.

 A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation of Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation.  This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity.

Our Philosophy

” We believe that all children in our care should be encouraged to appreciate and care for each other and develop responsibility for themselves, each other and their belongings.

The children will be provided with opportunities to extend on their abilities and encouraged to develop independence, self-direction and self-discipline through positive and meaningful interactions. “
