Located in our specially-converted Kindergarten centre yet adjacent to the rest of the school, our aim is to provide a nurturing environment that is home away from home.
Outside School Hours Care
We have spacious open areas, quiet rooms, excellent educational and play resources, and a playground designed to meet the needs of the younger age group.
The children in our care also have access to the College’s main facilities such as the library, hall, computer labs, music rooms and physical education spaces and equipment.
Taking account of individual needs, we work hard to ensure a safe, stable, supportive, challenging and happy environment for all the children in our care.
Sessions for school-aged children (from 7.30am – 8.30am and from 2.45pm – 6pm for Kinder students and 3pm – 6pm for all other students) provide a supportive environment for school activities and homework, and we always allow time for free play and planned experiences, as well as some quiet time. A nutritious afternoon tea is also provided.
We also provide care for Student Free Days and Vacation Care.
Term Two Holiday Care
Bookings can now be made for Term Two Holiday Care, which will run from Monday 6 July to Friday 17 July.
Please read and complete the program and booking form and return to the College Office by Monday 22 June. To ensure adequate staffing of our program, bookings must be made. We may not be able to accommodate children who arrive at Holiday Care without a booking in place.
The program runs from 8.30am to 6.00pm each day. If you need to drop your child off earlier than 8.30am, please advise the College Office so we can make staff available. Please ensure your child is dressed suitably for play and comfort, with clothing appropriate for the weather conditions. Morning and afternoon teas are provided, with a packed lunch required each day.
