Out of School Hours Care

The Program

As a community services organisation, we draw on many years of experience in early childhood development and education to offer an Out of School Hours Care program that puts your child, your school and your community first.

Windermere’s Out of School Hours Care (also known as Before and After School care) services are designed to meet the needs of your family and your school. Our professional educators are informed by the early years' framework (My time, Our Place) and offer:


A welcoming and safe environment

A child-centred program with age-appropriate activities

Fun, structured play and recreational program

Healthy breakfasts and afternoon snacks.

Inclusive program

Our programs are designed to be inclusive and support children with additional needs (including physical needs, cultural practices, family beliefs or personal lifestyle choices). We work with families to create individual inclusion plans so all children can gain the most from our before and after-school care services.
