The objective of Strathfield One Stop Child Care Service is to create a multi-purpose centre that is flexible and diverse in its operation, so we can help the growing needs of each family. We achieve this with various session times to suit all parents’ requirements.
We are a non-profit, community-based and parent-managed organisation which aims to provide high quality service at an affordable price. We provide a home-like environment catering to your needs and the needs of your child.
Our service runs for 50 weeks of the year and the centre closes for two weeks over the Christmas period.
Long daycare session – Hours are 8.00am to 6.00pm – with a possible 7.30am start available if required.
Shorter session care- 9.00am to 4.00pm (with a possible 8am start). Families have the option of providing their child with food from home or ordering a Kids Gourmet Meal at the cost of $8.00; this includes morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea-all dietary needs are considered.
Preschool session – Hours are 9.00am to 3.00pm with one hour before and/or after preschool available if required. Families are required to pack their children’s food and drink.
At our centre we focus on ensuring that parents, families and community members feel
welcome to actively participate, contribute ideas, skills and knowledge and provide us with
valuable feedback to enrich our high quality programs. As SOCCS is a parent managed
organisation, a Parent Committee is elected annually. Being part of this committee
enables you to become familiar with the running of the centre and to meet other
parents. All parents, regardless of whether they are committee members or not, are
welcome to attend the monthly committee meetings. An agenda with
notice of dates and times will be advertised prior to each meeting.
