After Care

Operating Hours: 2.30 – 5.00pm Monday – Friday.

We are always responsive to the needs of families – please contact us to find out any proposed changes to these hours.

Costs: $13 per hour, $6.50 per half-hour. (Minimum charge is $13)

Setting: AC is held in the playground directly after the day program and the children then come inside to the downstairs room for afternoon tea and further activities.

In response to parents’ requests, we became one of the first kindergartens in Brisbane to offer Before & After Care in 1990. Before Care was dropped in 2011 and After Care now operates from the end of each session until 5pm.

The  program is run by qualified staff and is supervised by the Director.  It is inexpensive, provides excellent care, and often gives busy families an extra hour or two in their day.  One of its major benefits is that it provides continuity of care in a familiar environment for children who require extended care.

The Coordinator for the AC program is (Miss) Amy Hancock who has a Bachelor of Teaching (Early Childhood). Amy provides a gentle, calming atmosphere to the end of the day.

The assistant for Mondays, Tuesdays and alternate Wednesdays is (Miss) Hannah Nothard who has a Certificate 111 in Children’s Services and is studying for her Assistant Diploma.

The assistant for alternate Wednesdays, Thursday and Friday is (Ms) Vera Lord who has a Certificate III in Education Support.

Afternoon tea is provided to all After Care children in attendance at 3.45pm (at no extra cost).
