After School Care

At Avondale School we understand the demands of a busy family and know work and school hours do not always mix. Our unique after hours care program incorporates After School Care and Get Active. This is designed to help relieve the pressure of finding quality care for your child, allowing you to keep working those few extra hours to get the necessities taken care of.

After School Care operates every day that school is open. It runs until 6.00pm Monday to Thursday and until 5.30pm on Friday. Children that are enrolled in After School Care participate in our Get Active program. After School Care is a Government licensed program that attracts Childcare benefits.


Our Get Active program operates from 3.30 pm to 4.30pm Monday to Thursday for 8 weeks each term (6 weeks in Term 4). Your child will enjoy a quick snack, have their name marked off a roll and be supervised to their chosen afternoon activity. At Get Active your child can learn new skills, start a new hobby, make new friends and enjoy new experiences outside of traditional school hours.


Vacation Care operates for a minimum of 1 week each school holidays. The aim of Vacation Care is for your child to have relaxed, interesting, safe and exciting holiday care. This program is also Government licensed and attracts Childcare benefits.
