The Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle is committed to supporting family life as the foundation of society and of the Church. One aspect of this is providing educationally sound and professionally staffed education services through St Nicholas OOSH, which operates from the parish hall at 30 Oakland St, Glendale.

St Nicholas OOSH is staffed by a professional team with a range of qualifications and experience as well as some working towards a formal qualification. All staff have current first-aid, asthma, and anaphylaxis management certificates, have completed child protection training, and hold a current Working with Children Check (WWCC).
