Before and after school care

Established in 2004, Primary OSHCare has grown steadily through reputation and consistent delivery of the highest quality out of school hours care (OSHC) services. We now provide OSHC services to families and communities in the public, private and independent education sectors across Sydney.

Primary OSHCare is a family owned business led by husband and wife Suzanne and Dennis Blythin. Suzanne is a trained teacher with 25 years experience in the fields of education, children's services and partnerships with schools and communities. Through her work with the NSW Department of Education, Suzanne identified a growing need for professional OSHC services that comply with the stringent National Quality Framework.

Suzanne is passionate about providing the best OSHC service possible and enriching the lives of children and families. Dennis has over 25 years experience establishing, developing and managing businesses. With a wide range of expertise gained from the management of complex engineering and construction businesses, Dennis is familiar with the business requirements and systems needed to ensure the highest levels of customer and staff satisfaction. Dennis is dedicated to providing optimum environments to enable children and staff to flourish at Primary OSHCare.
