Before & After School Care


We offer OSHC / OOSH care for children attending Shortland Public School only.


Imagine Shortland OOSH is conveniently located on the grounds of Shortland Public School. It operates from the School’s former Infants Department which was refurbished and converted into a Preschool in 1996.  The Preschool continues to operate from the site, as well an OOSHC for Primary School children.

A variety of activities are provided, including games, reading, sports, cooking art and craft. A quiet area is provided for children wishing to complete homework or to just chill out. Children can do as much or as little as they want.

Our staff are qualified and experienced in nurturing young children. They understand each child is an individual and strive to provide an environment where each one feels safe and welcomed.

Before School Care:

We understand mornings can be hectic for families, so if you wish to pack your child’s breakfast, staff will happily provide an area where they
can eat it. Milk is provided if you child brings in a cereal.
