Our Mission Statement
ROSC aims to provide a fully integrated out of school care service offering reliable childcare, which meets the needs of the local people. Within this aim, our high quality provision offers equality to all who wish to use the service. We offer a wide variety of stimulating, fun filled, creative and imaginative opportunities for your child within the confines of a safe and healthy environment. Our income, which we get from fees, is only high enough to run our services.
Aims and Objectives
Our purposes are:
- the advancement of children’s social and emotional development and education through play.
- the provision and organisation of recreational activities for children.
- the prevention of poverty by enabling parents and carers to access the work place.
Riverside Out of School Care (ROSC) is based within Riverside Primary School, Stirling and provides out of school care, a breakfast club and holiday club for school children aged 4 1/2 to 14.
Riverside Out of School Care provides a stimulating care environment which allows the children opportunities to bake, paint, build, create and we have access to the playground for outdoor play. While we prepare these opportunities, children are free to suggest activities and our planning can change accordingly. As well as taking part in structured activities, the children also have the opportunity to just relax, chat with their friends and generally “chill” after a busy day at school. We encourage children’s participation and consult with the children on ways to improve ROSC and the different activities that we could do.
At ROSC we’re strong believers in outdoor activities and allow the children to take part in “risky play”. This means that when we are outside the children can explore their surroundings by climbing trees or making dens and even starting fires in supervised, “risk- benefit” assessed situations.
