Our Philosophy

BOOSH provides a relaxing space for children after school, valuing their voices and opinions. Following the “My Time, Our Place” philosophy, we focus on play-based learning, letting children choose activities guided by educators. Our inclusive approach supports social and emotional development, fostering a sense of belonging. Through play, children enhance their skills, building self-confidence and self-esteem. We also promote self-help skills to manage behaviour and discourage bullying through communication and self-regulation. We are committed to sustainability and actively guide children to understand its importance, encouraging them to apply sustainable practices in their daily lives. 

As a fully accredited service, we adhere to staff-to-child ratios of one staff member for every 15 children. All staff and volunteers undergo vetting through the ‘Working with Children Check’. BOOSH recently underwent an assessment against the National Quality Standard, resulting in an overall rating of Meeting National Quality Standard (M).
