Our positive, professional and cohesive team implements a play-based curriculum which has been developed from the My Time Our Place [MTOP] and National Quality Frameworks [NQF].
We work with children from Kindergarten to Year 6 (ages 5 to 12) to develop their skills and capacities in a range of areas: structured play; team sports; arts and craft; imaginative pursuits; construction activities; and through implementing a child-centred program.
During school term time our staff work shifts that vary in length between two and four hours. These occur between 2.00 pm and 6.00 pm. We also hold two staff meetings per term to keep staff updated on information relevant to the service; developments in child care; and to hold training sessions to increase staff skills.
Our school vacation care programs operate between 8.30 am and 6.00 pm, Monday to Friday during any given School Holiday period. Staff can be rostered onto shifts for between two and five hours to support the operation of this program.
