Prepare your children for their brightest future. H.O.S.C.A believes in an environment of choice; full of activities and options! We offer a unique educational experience, designed to be inclusive, respectful and promote participatory engagement. We welcome all children from kindergarten to year level 8.
Here at Hosca;
Children are valued for their individuality and for their wonder and curiosities. We believe in children’s right to PLAY.
We believe that children must have some control over the direction of their learning and be given endless ways and opportunities to express themselves
All children have the right to learn through play which should be fun, exciting, challenging, hands-on, stimulating, relaxing, interactive, comforting and spontaneous
We feel that it is important to provide guidance and opportunities for children to discover, explore, create, investigate, practice theories, experiment, solve problems, express ideas and be calculated risk takers with the support of other children and the educators
We believe in celebrating children’s play, discoveries and learning and will do so through reflection, meaningful documentation, and learning stories
Hosca’s philosophy recognises the benefits of providing a holistic learning experience for our children in a caring, enriching environment supported by skilled, knowledgeable and passionate Educators who value families and the community.

Started November 2019
Towards the end of last year we started a program wall as you enter our Darlington centre. During the month of November and December we had our program focused on Dominoes as we were all showing a really big interest on these. The dominoes were a hit and we all learnt lots of different ways of building, we understood the need for persistence and patience while setting up the dominoes.
During the summer holiday's and first term of 2020, we did lots of clay projects, including pinching pots, bird houses, bowls and monsters. These are now getting glazed and hopefully be ready to go home soon.
This term we are focusing on our Quality Area 1, upon entering Hosca you will notice we have placed information on Quality Area 1 from our Quality Improvement plan, We would love some feed from our families about this area which focuses on our programming and how we deliver it.
Child Care Fees
Hosca will continue to provide high quality care during this time. We do ask that if you/or your child are unwell to please stay home.
The Government has offered free child care for essential workers. No fees for care will be charged till 28th June 2020.
