School-Aged Care

Before and After School

Programmes are dynamic and flexible, allowing children to choose the activities and experiences they would like to participate in each day and these are encouraged and further experiences are planned for the children, based on these identified interests.

Specially Designed Programmes

Our programmes are written by the Before and After School Care Educational Leader, in conjunction with the Co-ordinator, educators, families and children, and is guided by the national framework for school age care in Australia—"My Time, Our Place".

View Your Children's Journey

Our Educators use a variety of methods to document the children's journey with us, allowing for families to access valuable information about the opportunities afforded to them whilst in our care. This documentation is also used to create our weekly reflective journal, and for further planning within our service.

Children are encouraged and guided in contributing to their own learning. E-journals have been set up for each child, in which you will find learning stories and photographs documenting their time with us.

Social Development

As with school, the programme provides an environment for further social development by enhancing growth in areas such as working and playing co-operatively with others, respecting each others point of view, enhancing their individual self-esteem and self-awareness, accepting and understanding limits for appropriate behaviour and interactions with others, self-confidence and the ability to cope independently throughout the day through well-developed self-help skills.

Outdoor Activities

We include a large amount of outdoor play, encouraging children to challenge themselves physically and work as part of a team as they participate in a wide range of free choice and organised sporting activities.
