After School Care

Hours of operation: 3:00pm - 6:00pm

After School Care at LAC provides your child with fun, safe and engaging care for their afternoon. 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. 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.

Afternoon Routine

After the bell rings, children in years 1 and 2 come down to LAC to get their name marked off the roll. Kindergartens are picked up from their classroom by two educators and brought down to the centre. Years 3-6 wait in the pool area for an educator to bring them down. After getting their names marked on the roll, the children line up for afternoon tea and sit in their designated area on matsWhen the children have finished eating, they picked where they want to spend their afternoon. We offer a range of space in addition to our centre which cater for all children's needs, including:

 

After helping to pack up, the children are offered second food break at 5:00pm. The children are provided with a light snack,  to help them recover from a full afternoon of playing. After the second snack, the children are allowed to play calm and quiet games run by the educators until closing at 6pm.
