OSCARS @ Currie opened in 2016 offering breakfast club provision. The Breakfast Club is based from the school dining hall within Currie Primary School. The After School Club which opened in April 2019 is based from Currie Bowling Club – just a short walk from the school.
OSCARS Breakfast Club operates from the school hall and opens at 7.30am Monday to Friday. A nutritious breakfast is served by staff, and children can play a variety of games until the start of the school day. OSCARS staff escort children to their relevant meeting point at the commencement of the school day.
After School Club
The After School Club is based from Currie Bowling Club (enjoying use of the main hall and outdoor play areas). Children are collected from Currie Primary School by OSCARS staff before making the short walk to the bowling club.
The club commences from the end of the school day until 6.15pm Monday to Friday. The club offers a wide range of activities, and following consultation with the children, a weeekly programme of events and activities is planned.
On a Monday to Thursday on arrival, and on a Friday mid-afternoon, children receive a nutritious snack and drink which varies from day to day and the snack menu is displayed on a weekly basis at the club. Unlimited drinks are available throughout the afternoon.
OSCARS staff all wear OSCARS uniform consisting of orange polo shirt, orange fleece/water proof and ID badge. They collect children in classes P1 – P2 from their classrooms, while older children are greeted at the school entrance door.
The programme takes into account the time of the year, and incorporates special occasions and multi-cultural celebrations and at regular intervals will include theme weeks. Activities offered always include arts & crafts, physical activities and imaginative play, and the programme is always clearly displayed for all children/parents/carers to see.
Resources such as sports equipment, arts and crafts materials, board games, books, dressing up clothes, and pretend play equipment are readily available daily.
Occasionally, the children will enjoy an off-site activity, such as a trip to a local park, cinema, bowling etc. Details of these activities will be communicated to children/parents/carers in advance.
In service day and mid term childcare provision is offered and will take place at one of OSCARS childcare venues in the Currie area depending on facility availability.Request a Place
