Who can access our service
Children aged 4 to 13 years old who are attending primary school can attend our service. Also children starting school in January can participate in the January Vacation Care Program.
Our main schools are Richmond North Public School and Grose View Public School, but sometimes children from other schools can be taken in as well, depending on availabilities.
Children attending Richmond North Public School are walked directly to and from school each day.
Children attending Grose View Public School are walked to Richmond North Public School in the morning where they catch a public school bus at 8.45am. In the afternoon Grose View students catch a public school bus once again and this bus drops them directly at the service around 3.30pm.
We are licensed for 45 children. A waiting list is in place for days we are at full capacity.
We follow our Priority of Access guidelines to determine who has priority of access for vacant positions.
