Before & After Care

The Hive

Hello, and welcome to the Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) program. The Wantirna South Out of School Hours Care program is held at the school house called ‘THE HIVE’. Our aim is to provide children with an environment that is warm, relaxed and caring but one that will also provide the children opportunities to be involved in a wide variety of interesting, fun and challenging indoor and outdoor activities. We are committed to treating all children as individuals and our program is designed to meet all of their individual needs.

Our Educators

We have a wonderful team at The Hive who have all been with us for a number of years. They’re committed, friendly, and passionate individuals who are all working towards a teaching degree. Our team has a strong link through to our school with a real sense of community between everyone and we pride ourselves on the relationship we have with all children and families. We love getting to know everyone, even if your child is only with us for vacation care.

Our Vision

Our community-based quality primary school-aged childcare service is committed to optimising every child’s social, physical and moral development and believes that this goal is best met when parents, children and staff work closely and co-operatively together. 

We offer flexible options and a child centred focus that is guided by the children, families and educators reflecting on and promoting children’s opportunities for being, belonging and becoming. We aim to provide the highest quality education and care, offering an inclusive environment, creating links between the service and the community to foster community spirit and values.

We link our values to that of our school community, which has a long history of community engagement.
