We are closed from the 21st December until the 6th of January.

Our service is managed by our Director, Billy Graves, as well as a team of carefully selected and dedicated staff.
Our staff team consists of SSOs from Rose Park Primary School, as well as staff members who have worked with Billy in previous services. This gives a smooth transition for our children, and provides staff with whom they are familiar.
Our mission is to always recruit high quality staff at all times; we have a range of experienced staff who have worked in high quality services, have teaching backgrounds, or who are current students studying a Bachelor of Education.
Billy has a wealth of experience managing successful OSHC services over the last 10 years and has been working in schools or kindergartens since the year 2000, both in Australia and for Local Government in the UK. We recently recruited Billy from St Michael’s College in Beverley where he introduced a new Before School Care, and Vacation Care service at the college.
Billy is also a professionally qualified soccer coach with over 20 years’ experience coaching junior and senior sides here and in the UK, and is the current technical director of coaching at Modbury Vista in the local state league. Billy is keen to offer his support to a soccer program here at Rose Park Primary School in 2019.
Billy is always available to chat to parents and answer any questions you may have.
Enrolment forms are available for you to register your intent to use our service.
