About Gawler and District

Happy Haven OSHC Gawler District College we aim to provide a safe, warm, caring environment – a home away from home, where all children’s voices are heard. A place where children can engage in a variety of stimulating, fun and challenging experiences which builds self-esteem, strong relationships, and leadership skills to become confident individuals. Children can express feelings, vent and, with guidance, learn how to resolve arguments/disagreements to build social, emotional and well-being skills.

Accreditation & Policy

This site is yet to be assessed under the management of Happy Haven OSHC. Previously, it has held a rating of Meeting NQS. Please refer to the link below for more information.

NQS Rating and Assessment


Happy Haven OSHC has well developed policies and procedures approved by DECD and school Governing Councils on all sites on which we operate. You may ask to see a Policy at any time, and these will be available at your service. We have included some of our policies which may be particularly relevant to you here for your convenience.

All OSHC services need to meet basic standards in order to operate. This is monitored by a national body called ACECQA, with some responsibilities delegated to a South Australian agency referred to as The Board. OSHC services must demonstrate their competency across the 7 Quality Areas of the National Quality Framework for OSHC, and have rating and assessment visits on a regular basis. You can ask educators at your service for information relating to any assessment and rating visits they have had, as well as being able to access the site’s Quality Improvement Plan.
