As a ministry of Ryde Baptist Church, ROOSH stands alongside Northcross Christian School, united in its endeavour to provide families with a quality education within a caring, supportive Christian context.  To this end, ROOSH provides the highest quality Before School Care and After School Care programs within a Christian environment.

A typical day will start with children enjoying a healthy breakfast or nutritious afternoon before participating in a variety of structure activities – sports, science, cooking, arts and crafts.  There is also plenty of time worked into the session for children to make their own fun and play with friends.

If you think your child might like to join us or if you just need a break, ROOSH now has a small number of casual and permanent vacancy available.

For parents who are currently enrolled in ROOSH:

To report a child’s absence for which they are enrolled, please update this through  30 minutes before the session begins.  Please note failure to notify of an absence attracts a $15 fee.

ROOSH’s licenced closing time is 6:00pm sharp.  Having children on site past out licencing time is a serious matter for the service and has the potential to place our licence in jeopardy.  Please note the fees for a late collection start at $5.00 per minute.

A $15 failure to notify of a late pick up is charged, if the family do not phone ROOSH and inform us before 6:00pm.
