Services - Outside School Hours Care

At Riverlinks Child Care Centre the Outside School Hours Program can have up to 30 children and follows the ratio of one educator to 10 children. The program offers care for children prior to school starting and at the end of each school day. We have a centre bus and service the Australind, Kingston, Leschenault, Treendale and Parkfield primary schools. We take the worry away of how your child will get safely to school in the mornings and care for them in the afternoons.

Before School Care (7.00am – 9.00am)
We offer a variety of activities in the morning, and you can even purchase breakfast if you have not had time or it is a bit too early. The bus departs the centre at 8.15am to ensure that all children arrive to school prior to their start time. Kindy and Pre Primary children are walked to their classroom.

After School Care (3.00-5.45pm)
Our staff will collect your children from the designated pick up point at each school (you will be informed on enrolment). The children will come back to the centre for a nutritiously prepared afternoon tea and have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities or play. We understand that children have been at school all day and may choose to just hang out with their friends, or burn off energy outdoors.

Vacation Care (7.00-5.45pm)
Our staff provide an exciting program during the school holidays with lots of cool craft activities, science experiments, excursions and incursions. Your children will enjoy your stay with us socialising and making new friendships. Some examples of past awesome activities include: Master Chef Cook Off, Ranger Red visiting with his dingo, snakes and reptiles, visit to the underwater observatory in Busselton, movies at Grand Cinemas etc. We are open to ideas and suggestions, so come and tell us what you would like to do while you are here. To enrol for the program you will need to contact the centre or call in and collect a bookings form which is available 1 month before the start of each school holidays. Watch this space to view our up and coming program. We suggest you bring a bag with a change of clothes, sun smart hat and a packed lunch (no nuts or product of) each day. We will provide morning and afternoon snacks but you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.
