Recent surveys show that childcare costs continue to increase for the average family. In some areas in the South-East child-minders, nurseries, nannies and baby-sitters are charging up to £10.00 an hour!
This shows that, not only do OSCAHS provide high quality childcare we are also excellent value for money.

Look out for new services - coming soon
Holiday Club - Due to low attendance and an increase in our rental payments OSCAHS will no longer be running a holiday club at St Wilfrid Hall, Horley Row. We are currently in negotiations with our host schools where we hope to offer a more comprehensive holiday club offering, not only high quality childcare but Sports activities, Art n Craft and Creative workshops. We are hoping to offer this over the Summer holidays and will keep you posted with developments.
