Welcome to Happy Haven OSHC



About Hewett

Happy Haven OSHC Hewett acknowledges the Kaurna people as the first nations people and custodians of the land on which we live, work, learn and play. Happy Haven OSHC Hewett would like to pay their respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

At Happy Haven OSHC Hewett we deliver a play-based program that captures the current interests, skills, and abilities of all children in our care. We operate from the school gym, and have access to the surrounding nature play area, courts, and performing arts room. This provides opportunities for children to move freely between areas and activities.

It is our philosophy that all children should feel safe, secure, and supported, that children have the right to learn through play, and that children have the right to express themselves culturally, socially, spiritually, and emotionally.

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.
