Before and After School Care

Breakfast available: 7:00am – 8:45am
Programmed and free play activities are offered to the children each day based around the children’s suggestions and the Framework “My time, Our Place”.
The primary children (Years 2-6) meet together at 9:00am to attend roll call. These children are released to walk up to school by themselves. While this happens, children in infants (Kindergarten – Year 1) play a game or share news. These children then attend roll call and are walked up to their classrooms between 9am and 9:15am.
A parent or an adult must bring the children to the Centre and sign our roll for each day of attendance. Our maximum capacity of attendance during Before School Care is currently caped at 198 children each day.
