Programming

 Before School Care
Between 6.30am-7:30am there is quiet colouring, board games, table tennis and craft activities. At 7:15 children are invited to participate in outdoor play should they wish to do so. Activities are geared to the children’s interests on the day. This may include bin ball, basketball, line tag, stuck in the mud, soccer etc. The Wii U and Xbox are brought out on varying days of the week at 7.30am. At 8.15am we begin our tidy up time, all children help to pack up the equipment that has been used that morning. Once tidied we follow this with group time and roll call. Older grades are dismissed from the centre at 8.30am, preps remain behind and engage in reading time with their friends and educators. The preps are then escorted down to their classrooms at 8.45am.
 
After School Care
Afternoon tea is served from 3.00pm – 3.30pm allowing the children to have ample time to eat. We come together for group time led by our year 6 children at 3:30pm. The days’ program is shared informing children of the activities on offer for the day. From 3:30- 4:30 craft activities, homework and free play are inside and sporting activities and free play outside. At 4:30 inside people tidy all their area and then head outside to join in the fun. In the warmer weather we are staying outside until 5.30pm. Ipads are provided at 5.45pm – homework is to be completed before any Ipad games are played.
