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 offers structured activities in the afternoon, which are programmed around a weekly theme that influences craft, cookings and group activities. For more information on this head over to "Our Program" tab. Educators supervise to ensure that all activities are running smoothly, while also engaging with the children and ensuring that they are enjoying their afternoon.
We also offer a 'Kindy Room' program for Kindergarten students at our centre. This in an age appropriate program of activities specially created to help children develop new friendships in their first year of school in a quiet, calm and relaxed environment.
A second afternoon tea is offered at 5:00pm for the children, ending free play and providing the children with a small snack in order to help them replenish after an hour and a half of playtime. The food offered is a snack that has often been prepared with the help of the children.
If your child attends an extra-curricular activity while they are at after school care then you can arrange for an Educator to take them to and from their activity. Parents must ensure that a permission form has been completed and provided to the centre for all extra-curricular activities they wish for their child to attend.
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.
