Happy Haven OSHC Pty Ltd
Happy Haven OSHC Pty Ltd is South Australia's largest Approved Provider of Out of School Hours Care services within Department for Education Schools. We currently operate across 50 school locations, all within South Australia, both metropolitan and regional. We have a presence in the Western, North-East and Northern Suburbs, all the way out to Gawler and the Barossa. We offer high quality Before and After School Care, and fun and exciting Vacation Care programs in the school holidays.
We have a focus on ensuring high quality programming, child engagement and optimal duty of care. Child and educator wellbeing are of high importance to us, as is investing back into the company to enable us to offer further training and development, new technologies and resources, higher staff retention and excellent levels of satisfaction from children, their families, and the schools we partner with.
We are passionate about offering our services to South Australian communities and have a track record of opening services in areas that other companies do not want to work in as they are too small or not deemed profitable enough. We have also contributed donations to The Little Heroes Foundation for a number of years and are about to enter into an expanded partnership with them.
There is an extreme shortage of Qualified Educators within the childcare sector, with recent reports showing 8.4% of all childcare services require a Waiver to operate - which allows them to offer care with less staff holding specific qualifications than the regulations would normally allow. We designed out traineeship programs to see a long term and sustainable solution for our organisation which would meet our goals of high-quality staff delivering fantastic programs to our children, and increased levels of staff retention.
