About Us

Our Centre

We operate in a dedicated building within the grounds of Normanhurst Public School, providing Before and After School Care along with Vacation Care for children, from Kindergarten to Year 6, who attend Normanhurst Public School.

The Centre is supported by a Management Committee made up of volunteer parents, who have children attending the centre as well as staff representatives. We are an approved centre, which gives parents the ability to access Child Care Benefits (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) as a fee reduction.

We constantly strive to provide the best quality of care for the children who attend our centre by providing a pleasant and safe environment. The centre is open every school day and operated by a team of dedicated staff who are both trained / experienced and passionate about working with children.

Students enjoy;

  • playing with their friends
  • taking part in a variety of outdoor sports/games
  • indoor and craft activities
  • assisting their peers with homework
