After School Care

We support busy families with high quality care after the school day. Suitable for children from five to 12 years, our After School Care program is a great way to complement your child's learning.

Your child will get the opportunity to socialise with other children, as well as take part in a mix of fun activities. Whether your child enjoys arts and crafts, dance and drama, sport and ball games or wants to get ahead with their homework – we'll make sure they have an amazing end to their school day.

Healthy and delicious afternoons snacks are also provided as part of our program.

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.
