About Us


The purpose of BHOOSH is to support the parent community of Beacon Hill Primary school with an accessible, flexible and affordable out of school hours and vacation childcare and education service.

Operating Philosophy

We welcome all children and create a safe and fun environment where they are nurtured through a tailored program of structured and unstructured indoor and outdoor activities specifically designed to meet their needs and interests.


  • Nurture the children in our care to be successful, competent and capable learners
  • Provide children in our care a broad range of fun, stimulating and challenging experiences (that may not normally be available at home or school) that focus on nurturing all areas of their learning and development needs
  • Provide a balance of indoor/outdoor, noisy/quiet and active/passive activities that cater for the different children’s ages, genders, abilities, and interests
  • Maximise child and Educator engagement in the development, planning, execution and review of programming activities
