Active OOSH Story - Professional Child Care

Josh graduated from the University of New England in 2006 with a Bachelor of Education (Primary). He began his career working as a classroom teacher in DET schools, where he noticed a lack of quality Out of School Hours (OOSH) services. 

Active OOSH was born in 2011 with the opening of Active OOSH Cameron Park. Since then, Active OOSH has expanded into other communities in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie region. 

Josh is extremely proud of the strong relationships that he and the amazing team at Active OOSH have built with various communities, schools and families over the many years of Active OOSH. 

Josh’s main goals for Active OOSH are to:
