Out of School Club: Before and After school – Vacation Care Program during school holidays.
Our out of school club at Karratha Early Learning provides before and after school care to students attending Baynton West Primary School. Children are walked by the educators to and from the school. In a very practical program which caters for up to 10 children each afternoon. With a small number of additional positions offered via our My family Lounge APP as casual bookings. You can book your casual care up to 4 weeks in advance, matching your childcare needs to your roster.
As the children have had a long day in school we try to ensure our extracurricular activities help the children to relax and give them a chance to work on their social relationships. We engage in our links with the communities by taking the children to the library, parks and community gardens or other events run within our community. This also has an educational focus, but it is not too intense for them after a long day at school.
At Karratha Early Learning we often go to the park and this helps the children with their physical development, also learn about the environment and recycling. We are looking to develop a cooking program with our after-school students. We will aim to help them develop life skills while in our care. We pride ourselves on using 'My Time Our Place' to help guide our planning but ensuring the children feel comfortable, nurtured and relaxed whilst with us. We do offer support for homework, although we do not enforce it. As always, we follow the interests of the child.
