After School Care
3:00pm - 6:00pm
After School Care at LAC provides your child with fun, safe and engaging care for their afternoon. We start the afternoon with an early afternoon tea at 3:15pm after meeting and roll call.
Children have a number of opportunities to decide how they would like to spend their afternoon. Our key principle of ‘free play’ allows the children to choose how they would like to spend their afternoon.
The centre also offers structured activities in the afternoon based around a weekly theme that influences craft, cooking and group activities. For more information on this, head over to "Our Program" tab. Our educators set up and supervise our programmed activities to ensure that they are running smoothly, whilst also engaging with the children and ensuring that they are safe and enjoying their afternoon.
We also offer a 'Kindy Room' program for Kindergarten students at our centre. This is an age appropriate program full of activities specially designed to help children develop new friendships in their first year of school in a quiet, calm and relaxed environment.
After helping to pack up, the children are offered second food break at 5:00pm. The children are provided with a light snack, (usually prepared and served with the children) to help them recover from a full afternoon of playing.
After the second snack, the children are allowed to play calm and quiet games usually alongside a quiet group game inside run by the educators until closing at 6pm.
If your child attends an extra-curricular activity while they are at after school care, you can elect for an Educator to take them to and from their activity by filling out the attached form. Please ensure that the permission form has been fully completed and provided to the centre for any extra-curricular activities they wish for their child to attend before they can be escorted to their activity.
The centre will ensure so far as is reasonably practicable that children are accompanied to their respective venue at the allocated time, but does not assume responsibility for children once they have left the centre as they are signed out of the service. Once your child returns they are signed back into the service, and we resume responsibility for them.
Please complete this form if you require this service.
