Welcome to the Diocese of Parramatta’s Early Years Education and Care service
The Diocese of Parramatta offers high quality children’s services in a Catholic environment across Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains.
We operate school age care provided through COSHC (before/after school care, vacation care, pupil free day care for primary school age children) and early years education provided through CELC (pre-school for ages 3-5 years in traditional 8am-4pm and extended hours [6am – 6:30pm] format.)
At COSHC, Vacation Care is all about having FUN!
Our team is passionate about creating programs that children love and experiences they will remember. We offer theme days, have special guests running activities and provide exciting excursions.
No two days are the same and our activities are endless – children could be bowling, visiting a theme park, rock climbing, cooking, gardening, bike riding or on a treasure hunt. But regardless of the activity, parents can have peace of mind their children are having fun in a caring environment that is fully supervised and follows a COVID safety plan.
Everyone is welcome
Our vacation care programs are open to all primary school students from any school. And we love welcoming children from different schools as it is a great way to make new friends!
COSHC runs vacation care from 16 locations. Each service runs a unique program of fun activities. Please contact your preferred service for more details and bookings.
