Before and After School Care

We support busy families with high quality Before and After School Care. Our programs are suitable for children from five to 12 years, making it a great way for your child to socialise and make new friends.

We'll support your child's learning through fun and educational activities. This could include arts and crafts, board games and puzzles, cooking, drama and dancing, and sport and ball games. Our friendly Educators can also help your child with their homework.

Our programs include a nutritious breakfast to set your child up for the day ahead, as well as healthy and delicious afternoon snacks.

We also offer a Pupil Free Day program throughout the school year, depending on booking numbers.

School Holiday Program

Our Bannockburn holiday program provides an opportunity for your child to learn from new experiences through a fun mix of activities, while making friends along the way.

We offer a wide variety of interest-based in-house activities, themed incursions and exciting excursions. Our holiday programs are run by experienced Educators who help your child become more confident and independent.

Activities could include anything from music workshops and high energy fitness classes to celebrating the holidays at one of our awesome parties. We do regular excursions too, such as heading to the arcade or local indoor playground.

Keep an eye out for our upcoming program – we'll share the schedule on this page about four weeks before the school holidays start.

Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

Our programs qualify for the Federal Government's Child Care Subsidy (CCS). CCS helps eligible families access approved and registered child care providers by partially subsidising the cost of daily fees.

The 'Fee' price listed in the table above is the full permanent or casual daily fee for each program without any CCS entitlements.

*The 'You pay as little as' price is an example of how little you could pay if you qualify for the maximum CCS percentage (90%) as provided by the Federal Government. We've calculated this price to allow for the 5% withheld by Services Australia to reduce the chances of an overpayment.

When our holiday programs are open for bookings, you'll be able to see the prices for each activity on this page. These prices are the daily price and do not include any CCS you may be entitled to, which could significantly reduce your out of pocket expense.

Learn more about Child Care Subsidy or visit the Service Australia website for more information. We also recommend using this CCS calculator to estimate your new subsidy payments.
