Before & After School Care

Our OSHC program supports Essington's busy working families.

OSHC incorporates Before School Care, After School Care, and the Holiday Care programs. We believe the Centre is an extension of the home and that children, educators and families form a community from which children can gain a sense of belonging through shared goals and visions. Our team works closely together to collaborate and provide a best practice service.


BEFORE SCHOOL CARE

Before School Care is offered at no charge, from Monday to Friday 07:30am - 08:00am during school term only for students in Pre-Transition and above. Parents must sign in children to Before School Care at the Library.


AFTER SCHOOL CARE

Providing flexible care options, supervised After School Care is offered for students from Transition to Year 7. With an emphasis on wellbeing and development in a play-based environment, activities are planned and themed weekly to enable students to experience a variety of activities. A nutritious afternoon tea is provided daily.

Essington’s After School Care operating hours are:

Monday to Friday (during the school term only):
2.30pm - 5.30pm
