Quality environment 

MOOSH provides a relaxed and fun environment which supports your child’s ability to be independent, develop friendships and make choices.

The children engage in new experiences and pursue their own interests. With a focus on educational and recreational activities, your child’s interests and capabilities are recognised, encouraged and respected by our team when planning programs. We value the importance of family and encourage their involvement in our program.

The program is displayed at MOOSH’s Family Information Area. Examples include arts, crafts, group games, cooking, sports, dance, drama and much more.  A wide range of sporting equipment is also popular among the children, including bocce, croquet, rhythmic gymnastics, pop-up soccer goals and (for rainy afternoons) indoor ten pin bowling. Our selection of books reflect the children’s literary interests.

MOOSH also places a great emphasis on sustainability programs. The children have actively and eagerly participated in this learning, discussing and articulating their own environmentally friendly visions.

MOOSH Educators

MOOSH is staffed by a carefully selected team of qualified childcare professionals. Our team also participates in ongoing education and care training workshops run by Sutherland Shire Council to ensure their knowledge remains among the industry’s best. 

Importantly, our MOOSH team is highly energetic and enjoys interacting with the children and facilitating the many activities available during the mornings and afternoons.

Council also employs a dedicated team of Compliance & Quality Specialists who oversee safety and quality at MOOSH.  Our specialists are experts in standards, regulations and legislation which govern the school age care industry. We do this to ensure we offer children the highest quality care facility.


Nutritional food is provided at both morning and afternoon sessions. The weekly menu is displayed in the Family Information Area. Dietary requirements are also catered for and these should be discussed at the time of enrolment.


MOOSH is an inclusive person centred environment with the skills, services and flexibility to support children with additional needs. MOOSH promotes and implements inclusion through its curriculum and environment which accurately reflects the diversity of cultures, abilities, gender, races, religions, ages, family structure and socio-economic status in our service and community.
