Out of school hours care

Wishart Community Outside School Hours Care is an Incorporated Association run by parents who utilise the service. It is run on a non-profit basis and relies solely on the fees charged to parents. This centre is licensed under the Education and Care Services National Law Act 2011 Education and Care Services National Regulations. There are up to ten staff members on duty per day including a qualified Coordinator, Centre Manager and between four to eight child care educators.

We provide Before School Care, After School Care and Vacation Care.

Before School Care is open from 7.00am to 8.45am. Activities include indoor games, construction, craft and handball. Breakfast is not provided but children may bring their own healthy breakfast from home and eat it at the Centre. Prep children are walked by staff to the Prep building.
