What is OSCAR?
"OSCAR" stands for Out of School Care and Recreation. OSCAR services are before/after school and school holiday programmes for school-aged children, usually up to the age of 13 years. Not all these services call themselves "OSCAR" but they have common features such as a focus on play and recreation (rather than schooling), operating outside of school hours and in holiday times, and providing care while parents do other things - work, training or taking time for their own activities.
