Before and After School and Vacation Care for children aged 5 - 12.

Our Programs

Our Before School care program starts from 6.30am, and includes fun and stimulating activities in a safe environment, and a nutritious breakfast.

Our After School program provides care from 2.30pm until 6.30pm, and includes healthy afternoon snacks and fun activities such as board games, craft and Active After School Sports. Children are encouraged to be active and take part in a wide variety of physical activities such as Frisbee, tee-ball and croquet. Older children are also given an opportunity to complete their homework later in the afternoon.

Our Vacation Care program provides fully supervised care from 6.30am until 6.30pm for school holiday periods, including Pupil-Free school days and (if necessary) Teachers Strike days. We are constantly changing our program, but each day’s activities are generally themed and may include a “Master Chef” cooking day, Mad Scientist day, Disco Party Day or excursions to the movies or museums (excursions incur a $20 surcharge to cover the cost of transportation and entry to the venue).
