Welcome to ROOSH

ROOSH is a ministry of Ryde Baptist Church that provides quality Out of Hours School Care for children from Kindergarten to Year 6 attending Northcross Christian School.

We aim to complement the care that is already provided by your family and Northcross.

ROOSH provides the highest quality Before School Care, After School Care, and Pupil free day programs within a Christian environment. Our programs are designed to develop confident, healthy, and happy children who are engaged citizens.

Breakfast is provided during our Before School Care.
Afternoon Tea is provided during After School Care.

We have a program of activities of a varied and stimulating nature during out of school hours which will allow for opportunities for children to explore and develop new skills.

These activities include:

  •  Art and Crafts
  •  Food preparation and cooking
  •   Outdoor Sports / Activities
  •  Reading / Stories
  •  Indoor Games / Activities
  •  Homework Facilities
  •  Supervised free play without adult intervention.

ROOSH is a registered Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) service with the Department of Education and Communities. The service adheres to the National Education and Care Services Regulations and follows the ‘My Time, Our Place’ framework for school-aged care services. We were one of the very first OOSH services to go through Assessment and Rating in 2013 and we are currently rated as ‘Meeting National Quality Standards’.

The day-to-day care of children who attend ROOSH is supervised by experienced and committed Christian staff with the assistance of the Ryde Baptist Church Leadership Team.

A full copy of the policies and procedures manual will be provided to all families on commencement
