Before and After School Care

If you're looking for high quality care for your child before and after school hours, we're here to support you. Suitable for children from five to 12 years of age, our programs are led by experienced Educators and are a great way to complement your child's learning.

Your child will get the opportunity to socialise with other children and make new friends. Plus, we can tailor our activities to support their individual interests and ideas. So whether your child enjoys arts and crafts, dance and drama, or sports and ball games, we'll make sure they have an amazing start and end to their day!

We'll even provide 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.

Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

Our Before and After School Care 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.

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