Southside and Central Out Of School Hours services aims to provide high quality affordable out of school care for all children aged 4-14 years in the centre of Edinburgh and beyond.

Scoosh is a parent led charity that is proud of its record in providing services for the local community.

Our aims and objectives encompass the spirit in which we operate. We have a raft of Policies and Procedures that are linked to the standards set down by the Care Inspectorate.

Aims and Objectives

- Promoting a positive relationship with parents/carers and work in partnership with them to provide high quality play and care for their children.
- Encouraging the involvement of all our parents, where possible, in some aspect of the club.
- Ensuring our service is inclusive and accessible to all children in the community and offers them a programme that is interesting, educational, stimulating and fun.
- Creating a safe child-centred environment, which allows the children a degree of freedom within a fairly structured environment and offers them an opportunity to have their say and shape the programme of activities.
- Keeping our fees to a minimum by way of enabling low income families and families with multiple children affordable childcare.
- Ensuring our service is responsive and expands where demand is made in a manner that will not endanger our current services.
- Ensuring the staff team is experienced, well trained and properly supported within an equitable workplace.
- Making all our policies and procedures explicit and readily available to all our staff members and service users.
- Ensuring that our services meet the conditions of the Children's Act (Scotland) 1989 and comply with all other relevant childcare legislation, wherever they apply.
