Cooma Public School out-of-school-hours care 

Our out-of-school-hours care program at Cooma Public School provides quality supervised care for children from Kindergarten to Year 6.  From Term 1, 2024, this service will also accommodate children from Cooma North Public School.

Our caring team of qualified Educators provides safe and supervised fun and education, both before and after school, where children can explore, create and grow.

With a focus on middle childhood development, we provide a stimulating and engaging curriculum. Every day at the program is different, and we develop our program of planned and structured learning experiences in response to children’s needs, interests and choices. 

Community at the centre 

As a not-for-profit organisation, we are all about community.  

We are proud to be part of the Cooma community and our warm and welcoming Educators embed that within our outside-school-hours-care services. We know what makes Cooma special and respect the unique values and traditions of our community.
