About World4Kids

World4Kids is part of the exciting OSHC (Out of School Hours Care) industry. The Directors are Ted and Sian Hatzakortzian, both of which are highly experienced in the industry. They began the company in December 2008 however Ted had already worked in the industry for over 10 years. Sian is a qualified teacher who also holds a Bachelor of Business and an Associate Diploma of International Trade.

All children are welcome at our programs and we pride ourselves in developing a program which fosters independence and the ability to work as a team member. The philosophy of World4Kids is to provide an out of school hours service (before care, after care and holiday programs) for primary school aged children, at schools, which is based upon quality care, where children are safe and secure and where the needs of the children and their families are met. The service supports and enhances the education aims of the school yet provides recreational and fun activities.

PARENTS:

World4Kids is safe and super fun!

At World4Kids we place upmost importance on the safety and security of your child. We adhere to strict regulations imposed by the federal government that include a minimum of 1 educator to every 15 children. All medical, custody and personal details are held with confidence and monitored very closely by our consistent and qualified Educators.

Your child will be cared for vigilantly and with great diligence but we are also super fun! Nothing is too hard at World4Kids! We pride ourselves on having the latest game consoles, the best sports equipment and the biggest and greatest excursions out of all the OSHC providers! Your children won’t believe the brilliant Show Days, Stage Shows and Amusement parks we visit on a regular basis!

PRINCIPALS:

Convenience and school profit:

The Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) industry has recently become very heavily regulated and scrutinised under the new federal government standards and expectations. Whilst this is a fantastic initiative imposed by the government; many school run services are struggling to adhere to the strict requirements. We at World4Kids remove that burden from you and can offer a potential profit back to the school community with a negotiable profit share.

Staff and communication:

World4Kids is made up of a dedicated and knowledgeable team that will remove all hassle and concerns from the school whilst running a fully functioning, high quality OSHC service for your families. We employ only the best Managers that are employed on full time and permanent part time contracts in order to ensure clear and concise communication with the school. All educators are appropriately qualified, vetted and trained. Whilst we offer flawless peace of mind to the school by removing the OSHC hassle; we still endeavour to ensure the school’s philosophy, culture and values are an integral part of our curriculum. We also love to be present at all school events and often donate jumping castles, fairy floss machines and popcorn machines to many of our schools for their special events.

Referral program:

If you are an existing school with World4Kids and choose to recommend us to a sister school or neighbouring school, and they take on World4Kids as their OSHC Provider we will reward your school community with $2000! No catches, no questions asked. This is a new initiative introduced as of October 2013 and any referrals that occur after this will be entitled to the referral reward.

Summary:

There are lots of OHSC providers out there but we at World4Kids have a reputation for being the best and most fun! We have access to the best resources, we offer profit shares back to the school, we ensure children are safe and secure, we offer ease and convenience for parents and schools when partnering with us. We are aware you have a great deal of choice from a variety of different providers; but we assure you that if you choose to give World4Kids an opportunity you will have chosen the best and will not be disappointed.
