POOSH After School Care

Location, Opening Hours and Contact Details

Location

We are located on the grounds of Pymble Public School, on Crown Road near Reservoir Road. Enter through the main school entrance, turn right and walk past the school hall. We are directly behind the hall in the classroom with the rainbow door (science classroom). In the mornings, we operate from this room for year 3,4,5 and 6 children and in the afternoon, this is the base for year 4,5 and 6 children. The new brick classroom directly opposite the school hall stairs is used as the base for kindy, 1 and 2 children during the morning sessions and for year 2 and 3 children in the afternoons. The classroom attached to this class is the base for kindy and year 1 children during afternoon sessions only.

What is Pooshcare?

Poosh Care Inc provides before and after school care for the families of Pymble Public School. The centre is run by a management committee and a dedicated team of educators and directors Cara and Igor, as a self-funded not-for profit organisation. Any profits accumulated are used to fund Poosh projects, such as the joint funding project with the Department of Education to renovate the Poosh toilet block.

Communication regarding the centre will involve emailed newsletters from Hubworks, notices displayed at the centre administration area and emails to individual parents as and when required. At Poosh we believe that parents and children have an important role in the centre and we value their comments.

Opening Hours

 Mornings: 7:00am – 8:30am

Afternoons: 2:55pm- 6:00pm during school term time only.

Contact details

pooshcare@gmail.com (email is our preferred contact method)

Phone 02 99883137

We ask families not to ring the centre unless it is an emergency during opening hours as it is a very busy service and we need to keep the phoneline free for emergencies.

Vacation Care

Our licence is for term time care only. We do not operate a vacation care program. For vacation care options please visit the Ku-ring-gai Council website. Halfway through each term we email families the program and an enrolment form for Sacred Heart Vacation Care Program located less than 5 minutes away. By our community notice board (located in the Primary centre) and at sign out locations we also have flyers for Turramurra Vacation Care and local holiday programs focused on sports and crafts.
