Welcome to our OSHC
Keithcot King's OSHC is an Out of School Hours Care service run for Keithcot Farm Primary School, King's Baptist Grammar School and their respective Kindy/ELC. During Vacation Care, we open up to the wider community, accepting children and families from schools in the area.
We have separate programs for younger and older children during the after school care session to cater for individual needs and interests. Our range of leisure activities that include: cooking, craft activities, group games, sports activities, free play, TV and movies, quiet activities, books to read, console gaming - just to name a few.

An interoceptive activity focuses on creating and noticing a change in some aspect of one’s internal self, such as, one’s muscular system, breathing, temperature, pulse or touch. Some children are not able to identify the physiological changes that signal mood changes or bodily self‐regulation needs. Interoception activities teach us to connect with these. Ultimately we see this as an opportunity for staff to identify children's trigger behaviours and to provide support before escalation could occur.
An interoception activity focuses on a particular part of the body for at least 30 seconds.
• It enables a change to occur in one’s body state while labelling the movement and part of the body involved (e.g. toes, stretch and curl up or curl under)
• Repeat the same activity for a second time
• The individual is encouraged to identify a change in their body state (eg
