Making kindy work for busy families
Your busy life doesn’t always fit into preschool hours. That’s why we offer both before care AND after care as an optional service for families who attend Ashgrove West Kindy. We are also the first Community Kindy in our local area to offer Vacation Care.
Vacation Care and Before and After Hours Care are an additional paid service (both permanent or casual basis) that provide high quality care for children on either side of the sessional pre-prep program. Our program is staffed by a Coordinator and an Assistant, both with relevant experience in early childhood learning.
Before Care is available from 7.15am and After Hours Care is available from 2.30pm to 5.30pm. Afternoon tea is provided to children attending after 3pm.
Vacation Care is available to all children while they attend Ashgrove West Kindy. Families are able to secure bookings for their children to attend Vacation Care between 7.15am – 5.30pm in all school holidays (closing for the two weeks over Christmas/New Year).
Ashgrove West Kindy helps to support busy families with long hours and care available for 50 weeks of the year. The best for your child, year round!
