After Hours Care

west ashgrove preschool (64 of 84)After Hours Care is an additional user-pays service to provide care for children after the sessional pre-prep program.

After Hours Care is available from 2.30pm to 5.30pm each day the child ordinarily attends the pre-prep program during school term.

The After Hours Care program is staffed by a Coordinator and an Assistant, both with relevant experience in early childhood.  Afternoon tea is provided to the children attending after 3pm.

There are two fee structures for After Hours Care:

  • Permanent bookings – families wishing to use this service on a regular basis at set times can pay at the beginning of each term, to secure their child’s place and to receive the reduced hourly rate of $12.00; or
  • Casual bookings – families are able to book their child in to the service at any time on any day their child attends subject to places being available (including by telephoning on the day).  Casual bookings are $14.00 per hour and payable within 7 days of receipt of each invoice.

Families can also use the “Quick Stop” service, leaving their child at the Preschool until 3pm.  This service costs $6.00 and is payable within 7 days of receipt of each invoice (unless paid as a permanent booking at the commencement of term).
