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. Our programs are suitable for children between five and 12 years old, making it a great way for your child to socialise with others.

Our programs also include a mix of exciting and educational activities to support your child's learning. Activities could include arts and crafts, board games and puzzles, drama and dancing, and sport and ball games.

We even provide a healthy and delicious breakfast before school and snacks after school.

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.
