Our Southlake Out Of School Hours service operates before and after school care as well as vacation care for primary school aged children in the Southlake Community, based at Bonnells Bay Public School. The service is designed to provide safe, stimulating and enjoyable care for children whose parents or primary carer’s have work, study or other commitments and require quality affordable care for their children outside of school hours and during school holidays.
Through implementation of early intervention strategies and age appropriate activities we assist in nurturing and enhancing the personal growth of each child within their family, the community and the environment. Southlake Out Of School Hours and Vacation Care strive for excellence in the provision of pro-active child care and measurable outcomes through qualified staff who are sensitive to the individual needs of each child.
Children need to be enrolled prior to attending and placements are made available as per National Regulations ‘Priority of Access’ Guidelines. Southlake Out Of School Hours is registered to receive Child Care Benefit (CCB), a fee reduction scheme, which is based on family income and the number of children you have in care. Parents must register with Centrelink (link to CCB info) to receive this benefit. Further Information is included in our Family Handbook.
