Update yours, and your child’s, details

In order to provide the best care for your child, your information needs to be up to date.

Things that might need updating from time to time include:

Pay your fees

NLDOOSH is a not-for-profit organisation. Our Management Committee and staff ensure our service is high quality and provides the best affordable care for your family.

Follow us on Facebook

Our page, New Lambton District OOSH, contains many fun and exciting videos, pictures and posts about our clever, talented and cute children, as well as our community.

Donate craft items

Our students are very crafty so we are always looking for donations of craft items such as:

  • newspapers, magazines and catalogues
  • cardboard and paper (waste paper from your office is perfect!)
  • clean glass jars, with or without lids

We also firmly believe in the principles of sustainability so being able to reuse and recycle puts into practice the principles we teach our children.

Share your meal ideas

Food is important here at NLDOOSH and meal times are social occasions where we all get together in a relaxed atmosphere, chat about our day and nourish our bodies. We are always on the lookout for new healthy food options for our children. If you have any ideas, please send them through via

Join our Governance Committee

NLDOOSH is run by a volunteer parent committee, the NLDOOSH Management Committee. This committee is tasked with overseeing the provision of a high-quality service that is bound by inclusive and equitable practice with a commitment to continuous improvement and critical reflection. Genuine consultation with staff, families and other stakeholders is valued and is important to the successful operation of our centre. The Committee meets for 2 hours, 5 times a year on site at our centre.
