Christie Drage - Coordinator  Hello, My name is Christie I am the coordinator at Kids Hub OSHC.  I’ve been with Kids Hub since our very first days in February 2016 and have a long relationship with Angie and Kate who bought me on board at OSHC.  I have over 15 years’ experience as an early childhood educator with many different ages, have my diploma in children’s services and I’m a mum of one beautiful boy who also attends Kids Hub. I am extremely passionate about nature play, learning through play, nurturing and supporting our children and their sense of wellbeing and happiness at OSHC which the Kids Hub philosophy fully supports.  When I’m not at Kids Hub family and friend time is most important to me.  I am so excited to get to know all the children and families at Kids Hub hopefully forming strong and lifelong bonds with you all.

Hello, My name is Christie I am the coordinator at Kids Hub OSHC.

I have over 15 years’ experience as an early childhood educator with many different ages, have my diploma in children’s services and I’m a mum of one beautiful boy who also attends Kids Hub.

Angie West - Approved Provider  Hi, I am Angie and I consider myself an advocate for children’s rights when it comes to the freedom to play and enjoy nature.  I have been in the Early childhood sector for over 20 years now here in the Midwest.   I am a mum to 3 gorgeous children, 1 cat and 2 dogs.   I am very proud of Kids Hub OSHC and the team behind it, we pride ourselves on providing an exciting and age appropriate environment for school aged children.  We often ask ourselves “it’s risky..but can we afford not to allow the children to take the risk and the rich learning that goes with it?”  My passions in the OSHC environment are loose parts play and the art ‘atelier’ space that we provide for open ended learning.  Our program is based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery through a self-guided framework. At its core is an assumption that children form their own personality during early years of development and are endowed with "a hundred languages", through which they can express their ideas. ‘Reggio Emilia Approach’
