Before and After School Care Up to 12 Years
We offer a before school and after school care program (also known as Outside School Hours Care or OSHC) Monday to Friday, from 6:30am to 8:30am and from 3:30pm to 6:30pm. This program gives parents the flexibility to work and commute outside of regular school hours, while their children are in a safe, supportive, and caring environment. We include a healthy breakfast, afternoon tea, and snacks prepared by our qualified chef.
We maintain a dedicated vehicle that a trained staff member uses to drop children to school in the morning and collect them from school in the afternoon. Transportation is provided under very stringent safety policies.
In addition, children in before or after school care have specialised education programs. We liaise with their school teachers to work on their strengths and goals, support them with their homework, and foster their overall educational, physical, social, and emotional development. Please talk to the centre director or to the program lead educator to give us your input on any additional areas upon which you would like us to focus.
