Outside School Hours Care

Our aim at Whitsunday Anglican Outside School Hours Care is to provide a safe, relaxed and challenging environment to stimulate children’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.

We cater for students from Preparatory year and older.

At Outside School Hours Care, we believe children should be allowed time for stimulating and unstructured play in a safe, warm and caring environment where they feel unique and have a sense of belonging. Every child should have the opportunity to learn and develop independence, responsibility and respect for themselves and others.

It is our aim for children who attend to:

  • feel valued and cared for
  • be self-confident and independent
  • have high self-esteem
  • be socially competent
  • develop effective relationships
  • be able to communicate verbally and emotionally.

Outside School Hours Care offers opportunities to play with friends and toys, freedom to express feelings, and clear and reasonable expectations of behaviour. We help teach kindness and empathy, respect for others, their property and the environment and endeavour to build and maintain close parent and family relationships. Outside School Hours Care embraces diversity and cultural learning.

Care Facilities:

  • lots of room for noisy, active play
  • quiet places, to relax and rest, or to be alone
  • attractive displays of children’s creative artwork
  • an undercover play area
  • a playground for many different outdoor activities and places to explore alone and with friends
  • multimedia equipment
  • a sandpit with shaded areas to play
  • a refrigerator for children’s afternoon tea

The staff believe that all children are individuals and develop at different levels. To encourage further growth and development, children will be exposed to a range of different learning experiences through both indoor and outdoor play.
