Before School Care
Our Before School Care Service operates from 6:30am - 9:00am during the school term.
Children can enjoy a nutritious breakfast, play and enjoy their time before being safely escorted onto the school bus. Children enter the care of Blue Mountains Transit Bus Company who will see all children safely to the school grounds.
Any child enrolled in primary school may attend our Vacation Care service, which operates during the state school holidays from 7:00am - 6:30pm.
Children enjoy a range of activities including excursions and incursions, which make their holidays engaging and memorable.

Student Free Days
We offer all day care from 6:30am - 6:30pm on most state school student free days.
If any of the schools we service operate a normal school day, we run our before and after school care service concurrently for those children attending school for that day.
As a licensed child care provider, we are approved for the Government Childcare Subsidy (CCS) making our not-for-profit service even more accessible and affordable for families.
Families can apply for the CCS via their online MyGov account, which links to Centrelink, and fees are reduced accordingly. Families pay only the out-of-pocket cost to the service.
