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.
To support our families, we offer permanent and casual booking options. Casual bookings do incur an additional cost.
