Service Statement of Philosophy

​IOSHC believes that all children should have their physical, emotional and social needs met in a safe, caring and supportive environment.  The best interests of the child are the paramount concern of IOSHC.  We provide care that protects the children from harm whilst respecting their dignity, individual needs and privacy.  We strive to provide positive experiences through quality programming for all children in our care regardless of background, beliefs or physical and cognitive abilities, recognising that school age care provides opportunities for the development of life skills and age appropriate experiences.  IOSHC will promote sustainable and environmentally friendly practices through the program and all operations aspects of IOSHC.  Family involvement is vital to IOSHC through day to day interactions and feedback with management and staff through to attendance at the monthly Committee meetings where possible.
