Out of School Hours Care




Out of School Hours Care is a high quality accredited childcare service provided for parents needing care for their children before school and/or after school.

The program offers the following:

  • Before School Care and After School Care Program
  • Pupil Free Day Program
  • School Holiday Program

Children are cared for by qualified educators in a safe, relaxed and friendly environment.

We aim to provide activities which enhance and suit the developmental needs of all age groups.  Some activities offered within the programs include:

  • Art and craft
  • Science activities
  • Computer skills
  • Sporty sports program
  • Sports/indoor and outdoor games

Quiet areas are also available for children to read, complete homework tasks or to simply relax and unwind.

Before School Care

Available from 7.15am to 8.45am.  A simple nutritious breakfast of cereal, toast, muffins and pikelets served with fresh fruit and a glass of milk is available until 8.00am.

After School Care

Available from 3.30pm to 6.30pm.  The program provides a snack served with fresh fruit. We are mindful of children with allergies and avoid foods such as nuts. We encourage children to bring their own nut free snacks to sustain themselves.

Pupil Free Day Program

Pupil Free days run on demand and usually happen once a term. On these days, the Out of School Hours Program offers a program with many and varied activities to keep the children entertained. The program operates from 7.15am to 6.30pm.

School Holiday Program

Syndal South Primary School runs a School Holiday Program in Terms 1, 2, 3 and 4 based on demand and approval from School Council. The Program is a fortnight of organised fun with activities planned for the morning and afternoon sessions and some great incursions and excursions. There is also a Holiday Program during the summer break for two weeks prior to the start of Term 1.

All programs are approved for the Child Care Subsidy. If you require assistance with claiming for the subsidy you can contact Centrelink or use your Centrelink Online Account via myGov.
