BH OOSH 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.

BH OOSH Objectives

  • Nurture the children in our care to become confident, connected, happy, healthy and well-rounded individuals
  • 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
