Before School Care – Term 1, 2014

Term 1, 2014 sees our service offering Before School Care, subject to us meeting a minimum booking numbers of per session.  Please, support the program by booking today.

Program:

Hours of operation:

Trialling: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday (subject to a minimum of 3 children per session)

Start time: drop off any time after 7am, to the school hall (ring the door bell for entry)

Where Does BSC Operate From:

It operates from the school hall.  Children are dropped off by parents, entering through the front door of the school hall.  Parents are to sign your child/ren in at the front table in the attendance register.  Please always ensure an educator knows you have arrived to drop off.

Children leave their bags at the front of the hall  say good-bye (hopefully mum or dad have got time to get a coffee before the train!) and head off to have some breakfast  (cereal, toast, yoghurt, fruit). After breakfast, children will be ask to brush their teeth, so please bring their toothbrush!

What We Do:

Children have breakfast upon arrival and then can play a quiet game, complete any homework, watch some TV (G rated shows only) and relax before school.  We have intentionally NOT scheduled too many activities as we do not want children tired before they get to class.  We also acknowledge that some children take time to ‘warm up’ in the mornings.

However some activities will be available – drawing, simple craft, ball games, board games etc.

What To Bring:

Children bring their school bags and anything else they need for the school day (their lunches, homework etc)

We also ask that your child brings a toothbrush and toothpaste (spares will be provided if necessary)

Transfer of my Child/ren To School’s Care:

Around 8.45am children will be taken outside to put their bag in their class line and for a play with their friends as they arrive at school (both a teacher and OHSC staff member will be present in the play ground).

At first bell, the OHSC staff member will ensure students are in their lines, ready for teachers to collect them (approximately 8.50am)
