Out of School Hours Care (Before and After School Care)

Are you looking for an Outside of School Hours Care program that is nurturing and child-focused? 

As a not for profit, 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.

You can find out more about our family wellbeing services and what we do here.

Tailored before and after school care services

Windermere’s 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 learning program
  • Healthy breakfasts and afternoon snacks.

Holiday care programs (vacation childcare)

Our holiday care program is designed to suit primary-school-age children during school holidays/vacations and includes:

  • nutritious snacks, breakfasts and lunch
  • an exciting calendar of age-appropriate activities
  • incursions, excursions and special experiences.

We welcome children of all abilities

Our programs are designed to be inclusive and support children with additional needs. This includes working with families to create individual inclusion plans so they can gain the most from our before and after school care services. 

We are also proud to support children who have additional care needs, such as specific cultural practices, family beliefs or personal lifestyle choices.

Before and after school care fees

You have the option to book casual sessions or ongoing before and after school care sessions. Holiday program activity/excursion costs will also include entrance fees and incidental expenses.

Our OSHC rates are designed to be cost-effective, with a discount for ongoing (permanent) bookings. You can find our specific fee schedules in the school sections below.

The Childcare Subsidy (CCS) enables you to receive a discount directly off your OSHC fees.

Your CCS entitlement is paid directly to us as your service provider and you receive a reduction in your fees accordingly. You can find out more about the CCS and how to apply here.
