Our Culture

The Ironside Community strives to foster a sense of well-being and support, ensuring that children feel confident and involved in their learning experiences. We hold ourselves to these standards based on three core components:


Ironside OSHC is committed to providing a quality service where

  • The children’s physical, emotional and social needs are met in a safe, caring and supportive environment
  • Programs are designed to cater to the children’s age, skill, interests and abilities through a variety of challenging and recreational activities
  • Children, parents and staff are treated with respect and their individual uniqueness is acknowledged and valued
  • The centre encourages parental and community participation. We welcome open discussion on all issues relevant to the centre’s operation

Mission Statement

To be a quality provider of outside school hours care that is fun, caring, educational, nurturing and rewarding at a reasonable cost. We will service Ironside State School and the wider  community in outside school hours care for children aged 4 (Prep) to 12 years.


We believe that as children spend 6 hours per day in a school environment, it is important to offer a service that gives them time to relax in a safe environment and to interact with each other on many different levels.
