Helping Hands OSHC Buderim Mountain

Helping Hands Network is working in partnership with Buderim Mountain State School to provide Outside School Hours Care services to the school community.


The Helping Hands Network OSHC facility is located in the under covered area near the library at the front of the school. During the cooler months, the hall is used for before school care. All children attending the service must be dropped off in the morning or collected in the afternoon by an authorised person and signed in and out of the OSHC facility each day.


Helping Hands Network tailors their programs to meet the local school community needs, providing much more than child minding. Their programs are designed to develop stronger, healthier, happier children and to provide an environment that is like a “home away from home”. Programs are developed in consultation with children, parents, the school community and Helping Hands Educators. They are tailored to cater to the children’s age, skill, interests and abilities through a variety of challenging and recreational activities.


Care is available 5 days per week during term time. Before school, the service operates from 6.30am – 9.00am. After school, the service operates 3.00pm to 6.00pm. Children can walk straight to and from their classrooms. Educators pick up and drop off the Prep students and escort them to the OSHC room.


A full day program is available 5 days per week during school holidays, and on Student Free Days from 6.30am to 6.00pm.


Helping Hands Network provides a healthy breakfast at Before School Care and a healthy afternoon tea at After School Care. Breakfast, morning tea, and afternoon tea are all provided at Vacation Care. In addition to these meals the children also have the opportunity to participate in cooking activities and the occasional special treat.

Currently, places are available in Before School Care, After School Care and for Vacation Care.
