Outside School Hours Care
Whitsunday Christian College runs an After School Hours Care program for the convenience of our Families. Our aim is to provide high-quality school-age care and recreation for the benefit of the College and the wider community, with a fun, caring, stimulating, safe and supervised Christian environment that enhances the child’s physical, spiritual, emotional and social development.
This service caters for students in Prep to Year 6 from 3.00pm - 6.00pm Term time only. Healthy afternoon tea is provided.
Students in Prep - Year 6 meet at the bus area at the front of the College and are collected by the Educator at 3.00pm and walked to the Outside School Hours Care facility.
Within the Service areas are set up with puzzles, board games, cars, dolls, building blocks, construction sets and a variety of different toys the children are free to enjoy. Outdoor play equipment is freely available and includes hula hoops, skipping ropes, balls and catching implements. We make regular trips to the playground, soccer field and undercover areas so that the children have access to a variety of sport and activities. It is our aim to make the children feel as much at home as possible while they attend the service.
