Before School Care

Upon entering the hall, families are greeted by a staff member, who will introduce themselves and show you where to sign your child in.

Your child will be encouraged to participate in an activity and/or be offered breakfast. Breakfast is available each morning from 6:30am to 7:30am.

There is a written program of activities. Depending on the weather, the children will have both inside and outside activity options.

Parents may stay as long as they wish to ensure their child is settled into the new environment.

  • At 8:00am after the hall is packed up, staff play a large group game with the children.
  • At 8:15am roll call is done and the children have an opportunity to tell some news to the group.
  • Barnier children are dismissed at 8:30am into the care of the teacher on playground duty.
  • John Palmer Children are dismissed at 8:30am into the care of the teacher on playground duty.
  • Schofields Children are dismissed at 8:45am into the care of the teacher on playground duty.
  • Richard Johnson Children are dismissed at 8:30am into the care of the teacher on playground duty.

After School Care

Staff collect kindergarten children from their classroom during TermĀ 1 only.

After Term one they must then walk to the hall, along with all the other children, after the end-of-school-bell rings. There will be Northwest Community Childcare staff members at the school hall to greet the children and sign them in on the roll. They must then put their bag against the inside wall before sitting, where they can socialise with friends before listening to announcements, washing hands, and eating afternoon tea. Then it is time to commence the variety of programmed activities.

Depending on the weather, the children will have both inside and outside activity options.
