WOOSH provides care for primary school children between the ages of 5 and 12 (Kindy to Year 6). The service is usually utilised by parents who are working, studying or looking for work or who just need a break from the demands of parenting.
What schools do we cater for?
Most of our children attend Woodport Primary School but all children are welcome from any of the local schools in the area. Currently we are providing care for children who attend:

You can talk to our staff about options for your child travelling to and from the centre.
