Out of School Care Network (Auckland)

The Out of School Care Network (OSCN) was established in 1990 by out of school service providers and child care advocates who were concerned about the lack of minimum standards, recognised training or adequate funding. OSCN was formally incorporated in 1993 and began employing staff to help it operate.

OSCN currently employs two staff and is managed by a voluntary Executive Committee, elected annually from our members.

We have approximately 160 members in the Auckland region - sole traders, companies, community organisations, schools and local authorities. Our members operate before and after school and school holiday programmes that are based in schools, community and recreation centres, churches, early childhood centres and sports facilities.

Our services include:

  • Five and Up – a quarterly newsletter
  • Professional development courses
  • Network meetings and forums
  • Written resources and publications such as “The OSCAR Legal Kit”
  • Advice and support on: CYF Approval, funding, policy development, legal and employment issues, activity ideas and programming
