ROOSH began in 2005 and is a ministry of Ryde Baptist Church. The service provides Before and After School Care for the children of Northcross Christian School.

ROOSH is fully registered with the Department of Education and Communities. Our registered provider is Ryde Baptist Church.

In 2011, we become fully compliant with the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations which has allowed us to offer child care benefits, rebates, and other financial assistance to families. In August 2013, we received our assessment and rating with the Department of Education, and have been assessed as ‘Meeting National Quality Standards’. This result puts our service in the top 25% of all OOSH services in Australia.

ROOSH is staffed by a dedicated team, many of whom have been working at the service for more than 4 years. The service places a high level of importance on continual training for staff. Most of our educator staff are either studying Teaching at University or have completed training in child-related fields. We also employ junior staff to assist with cleaning and food prep.

ROOSH requires all staff to hold a current working with children check; and be currently certified in Apply (Senior) First Aid,  Emergency Management of Asthma and First Aid Management of Anaphylaxis; as well as Child Protection.
