Shoosh Kidz Rosewood Out of school hours care is a small licensed 40 place childcare facility for school age children ages 4 - 15. Care is available to all local schools, including Rosewood State School, Ashwell, St Brigid's, Faith Lutheran College, Rosewood High School, Mt Marrow and Walloon State School. We are located on the school grounds of Rosewood State School and it is privately run by a local single mother.

We have been providing this service to Rosewood for 7 years, it was established in June 2010. We are fully accredited under the national framework and work hard at providing quality care to the community.

We have recently been informed of the school putting up for tender the position of OSHC. and we are looking for your support so that we can continue to provide care to our local community.

Shoosh Kidz is currently providing 3 amazing educators local to the area jobs, Kate Castle is currently completing her traineeship Hannah Brieschke is studying her diploma. Lauren Phillips is our casual educator. Majority of past staff have also been local to the Rosewood area.

Myself, the owner/director bought a house in Rosewood and my youngest 2 children attend the Rosewood state school, my oldest son has graduated from Rosewood high school and has moved on to a uni course. I made a big decision to commit myself to the Rosewood Residence by creating a loving and welcoming care facility. My own 3 children are all diagnosed with High functioning autism and being a single mum without support I created the support I needed for others as I understand how hard it is. So a huge focus has been inclusion support to local families with additional needs children offering a service specialised in the care they require. We have a very high ratio of additional needs children and I am very proud to say the children love it here and feel a big sense of belonging. so much that they don't want to leave at the end of the day.

We offer a fun age appropriate program based on the my time our place framework. we offer Before School Care 6am-830am, After School Care 3pm-6pm and Vacation Care 6am-6pm. We provide breakfast and afternoon tea. our menu is sugar free, preservative free and very healthy fresh fruits and vegetables.

I believe in offering an old school approach to our service where children play and are creative and technology is very limited we focus on our social skills and do the things we don't get to do anywhere else and it's all about fun and inclusion.

Your support is needed so I can continue my goal for many more years to come. Without your support I am very concerned that a large company will get the tender and the locals will no longer get the personalised care they currently receive.
