Our Philosophy

The Philosophy of Concord Out of School Hours Care

At COOSH we believe that a quality environment for children is one which promotes a child’s self esteem and competencies, and where staff feel comfortable and confident in their role.

 We believe that:
  • Families are the paramount influence in a child’s life
  • The service should provide effective communication to families
  • The values, traditions and beliefs of each family should be acknowledged and respected
  • The services should support and assist families in undertaking their parenting role.
We believe that:
  • Each child is unique and should be valued for their individual personality and abilities
  • Children have the right to a safe, secure and stimulating environment
  • Children have the right to be treated as capable and competent and should be provided with the opportunities to develop and practice new skills.
We believe that:
  • Staff should be provided with ongoing opportunities for professional development.
  • Staff be provided with the opportunities to be involved in the preparation of the services program
  • Staffs need to be valued as individuals and their unique skills and abilities acknowledged and utilized.
