As part of our commitment to families, The Lakes College provides quality care for all students of all year levels, before and after normal school hours, and in vacation periods. Parents are encouraged to enrol in the College Care Program at the time students commence with the College. Families attending College Care may be eligible to receive assistance with fees through the Australian Child Care Subsidy. Information is available from the service or Centrelink.
During school terms, College Care is open from 6:30am until 8:20am for Before College Care (BCC) and from 3:00pm until 6:30pm for After College Care (ACC). During Vacation Care (VC) we are open from 7:00am to 6:00pm. During ACC we provide a healthy and varied afternoon tea menu which is informed by health and nutrition, individual’s needs (i.e. allergies) and children’s likes & dislikes.
College Care recognises the importance of play as part of every child’s learning. The program aims to provide play and leisure based activities that extend on children’s current interests and needs. The program provides opportunities for children to participate in a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities including cooking, art and craft, group games and sports. Our flexible environments also allow children to choose activities as individuals or in small groups to pursue experiences that are of their own choice. Educators are always encouraging of children’s ideas and often base experiences around these.
College Care is offered to all students of The Lakes College. To enrol your child/children for College Care, please register via the My Family Lounge below and follow the steps to complete the enrolment.
