Located just a short walk from Artarmon Public School, Artarmon OOSH operates from Artarmon Kids Cottage Community Centre; a large, modern, purpose-built premises privately nestled amongst an ever-green outlook.
Walking into our centre, you are immediately introduced to a natural light-filled open plan setting - with an added option to retreat to the “quiet room” to do homework or some reading. Outside we have a playground and gated vegetable garden, regularly visited by our local brush turkeys, possum and laughing kookaburra.
Here at Artarmon OOSH, we focus our attention on providing and delivering a holistic program that will help shape the foundation of your child’s life-skills experiences. Through play, your child will further develop their confidence, self-esteem and resilience under the guidance of a team of experienced and qualified educators. Our program will introduce your child to the fun of art and craft, multicultural cooking experiences, organised and self-directed games, weekly coached sports activities, drama and social play, and most importantly - aide in creating new friendships.
Artarmon OOSH shares a long history in the Artarmon local area, having welcomed many families into care from generation to generation. It is a service that your child will find becomes an extension to their family and home - a place where we hope you too will create your own memories of your time with us.
We look forward to welcoming you to Artarmon OOSH!
