Shelley Outside School Hours operates within the grounds of Shelley Public School in Blacktown, conveniently located just off the M4.
We’re open from 7am – 9am for Before School Care with breakfast provided, 3pm – 6:30pm for After School Care with afternoon tea provided and 7am – 6:30pm during Vacation Care.
We create an environment that is homely, caring and stimulating for children from kindergarten to year 6. We pride ourselves on a strong curriculum, supported by the Australian Government’s ‘My Time, Our Place’ framework for school-age care.
Children are invited to join in a variety of planned and unplanned activities and are able to engage in experiences that are of interest to their age group. Children’s diversity is recognised and children are supported to explore who they are and who they want to become.
Vacation Care, which operates during school holidays is a great opportunity for children to engage with others from different schools within the community. We offer a variety of activities, which include art and craft, cooking and theme days. Exciting and fun excursions are programmed every holiday.

Louise Varano, Centre Manager
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Centre Manager of both Hassall Grove and Shelley Outside School Hours services.
I have been working in the OOSH industry for 11 years. 10 of those years have been with Children First, having worked in both OOSH centres before beginning my management role in 2013.
I usually pop into the services several times throughout the week. My goal is to work with the educators to provide a fun, inclusive and welcoming environment that children of all ages can learn from and enjoy.
We welcome families to share feedback, comments or suggestions at any time.
I look forward to welcoming you to Children First and seeing your child reach their full potential with us.
