After School Care is a terrific solution for busy families and provides a stimulating environment for your child to grow and learn.
Our program is open to primary school aged children (5 to 12 years).
We cater to the needs and interests of all ages under our care.

Our team will collect your child from their school gates and safely transport them to the hall in a bus. The program is open to primary school children from all schools in the Horsham community.
Children will be engaged in a range of activities, including:
Creative & expressive arts
Sports & team games
Educator-to-Child Ratios1:15 ratio for children over preschool age (5 years).
Weekdays: 3:30 PM* – 6:00 PM

We offer a School Holiday Program between terms.
*Start time may vary based on when your school ends and transport requirements.
