safe, secure care for your child
After School Care
Campus West (Saints) – Preparatory School – Year 6
Scots All Saints College provides After School Care as a service for our families. The service is offered to all students from Preparatory School to Year 6 each school day. After School Care provides a program that includes various activities which assist in the social, emotional, creative and physical development of each child in a relaxed and fun environment.
After School Care is located in the former Pre-Kindergarten Area in the Junior School on the Campus West (Saints), and operates from 3.15pm to 6.00pm Monday to Friday during the School Term.
Please indicate in your child’s diary if you wish for them to attend after school care. Children are required to report to the coordinator immediately following the bell each afternoon so that they can be signed in to After School Care.
If you are late picking your child up from school, they will be sent to After School Care and you will be charged the appropriate fee.
Parents are required to sign the child/children ‘out’ of After School Care on departure. Please notify a staff member when you are leaving the After School Care.
If someone is collecting your child from After School Care other than the parent or an authorized person, prior notification must be given. In an emergency a phone authorization must be provided to the Coordinator. An unauthorized person will not be permitted to collect your child.
A weekly program is designed to encompass a balance of:
- Indoor and outdoor activities
- Quiet and active activities
- Individual and group activities
The staff are flexible in changing the planned activities and routines to suit the needs and interests of the children and to allow for changes in the weather or any situation that may impact on the schedule.
