Out of school hours care

​Welcome to Mooloolah After School and Vacation Care Program. We know your children will enjoy the time they spend in our warm, caring, professional and fun centre. 

 

Enrolment procedure

Families interested in using the service are given an Information package and a family handbook which contains in depth information regarding the service. Parents are asked to fill out an Enrolment Form showing current details for you and your child/children. 

A bond of $50.00 must be received before your child can attend the service. The information package can be downloaded here or pop in to the service to pick up a copy.

Hours of operation

Before School Care

We open at 7.00 am. Older children are permitted to move over to the main playground from 8.30 am. Prep and Year 1 children are escorted to their classes from 8.40 am when the first bell rings.

After School Care

Prep and Year 1 children are collected from their classrooms at 3.00 pm. Older children are expected to make their own way to the service promptly at 3.00 pm. All children must be collected by a parent/guardian by 6.00 pm sharp. Any emergency care needed after 6.00 pm is charged at $20 for the first 15 minutes and $1.00 per minute after that, per child.

Vacation Care 

We open at 7.00 am and close at 6.00 pm during State School holidays and on pupil free days.

Closed: We are closed on Public holidays, weekends and 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year.

Cancellations

Cancellations must be made by a parent; we are unable to accept cancellations made by children. To avoid being charged for the session, cancellations must be made before 4.00 pm the day prior to before school or vacation care, and before 9.00 am on the day after school care commences. Even if you have to cancel at the last minute please always let us know - we go to great lengths to endure that your children are safe, so please keep us informed!

You must personally sign you child in or out when leaving them in our care. Children are not permitted to arrive or leave without a designated adult, unless written permission is given.

Activities

During each session we offer craft and movement activities, both planned and spontaneous.

 We swim at the pool next door in Term 4 and Term 1 on a chosen afternoon and then planned days in the holidays.

Off site excursions are often held during vacation care or incursions which are at an extra cost to the parents.
