North Ryde OSHCare Service

We know that access to high quality before, after and vacation care is essential for many parents of our school community. At North Ryde Public School we use Helping Hands, a well-regarded specialist provider of out-of-school-hours (OoSH) care.

The Helping Hands Network company philosophy is to provide more than just a child minding service and strives to build stronger, happier and healthier communities through the provision of quality childcare in partnership with children, parents and schools. They tailor their programs to meet the local school community needs. More information on the company can be found at

Before School Care          Monday – Friday          7.00am to 8.40am          $16.00

After School Care             Monday – Friday          3.00pm to 6.00pm           $21.00

Please note that there is no charge to enrol in the service, and we would encourage all families to consider enrolling. Even if you only need to use the service in absolute emergencies, enrolling provides your family with an extra safeguard. It is a licensing requirement that children can only attend the service if an enrolment form has been completed.

An information pack is available from the centre or the school office. Please call Helping Hands  on 0417 391 300 or email [email protected] if you have any questions or for more information.
