BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE
Before school care provides a safe, caring, and independent environment for the children to engage in while they wait for school to begin. We understand all children start their day at a different pace to allow for a much quieter, relaxed environment. Children prepare their own breakfasts taking initiative over their self-help skills, engage in free play, craft, and even play on the basketball court to have some fun and let out some energy before school begins for the day
After school care is much more fast paced, louder, and spontaneous. Unlike the morning routine, the afternoon provides much more opportunities for engagement due to more time and expanded use of spaces. We have everything from gardening, cooking, craft, quiet construction play inside to outdoor organised sports, tree climbing, cubby building, and sandpit. After roll call and afternoon tea at 3pm, the children can choose what they wish to participate in, moving freely through the program until they get picked up to go home .
