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.

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, Cahill Centre, 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.

Both the morning (7.30am – 8.30am) and afternoon (3.05pm – 6.00pm) sessions provide students from Kindergarten to Year 6 with a supportive environment for free play, planned experiences, school activities and homework as well as some quiet time. A nutritious afternoon tea is also provided.

We also provide care for Student Free Days and School Holiday Care.
