School Aged Care
Before / After School Care
The Before School program allows the children to have breakfast at the Centre (before 7.30am) and then they participate in indoor or outdoor activities. They are driven to school in the centre bus or car which leaves the Centre at approximately 8.15 am.
In the After School program, children are provided with afternoon tea collected from their respective schools by the Centre bus and delivered to the Centre, arriving at approximately 3.20 - 3.45 pm.
After arriving back to the centre school children participate in programmed activities - sport, games, gardening, etc.
The Centre’s aim is that the children enjoy their time with us. We are not a school and we do not do school work, although we may supervise homework. The Centre has the right to refuse care to a child whose behaviour is not appropriate, either on the bus or within the Centre.
Charges are made based on the following rates:
- Permanent Before School Care
- Permanent After School Care
- Permanent Before and After School Care
- Casual Before and After School Care (Hourly rate)
Vacation Care is offered each school holiday period. It is necessary to book your child into this care, as spaces are limited because numbers at the Centre cannot exceed the licensed capacity.
The children are in the care of a suitably qualified person who programs outdoor, indoor and craft activities and also excursions for the children. Our aim is to make the children’s holiday as enjoyable as possible.
Charges are made on a daily basis. Preference is given to children who have Before and After School Care bookings.
