Big Childcare runs a fun, engaging and safe out of school hours program catering for families who require child care before and after school. 

Our before care program allows children to be dropped off at school early, have breakfast and enjoy some fun activities before school. 

The after care program takes place when school finishes. Younger children are collected from their classes by Big Childcare staff and can be collected by parents any time up to the end of the program. This is ideal for working families or for children to use for recreation and social interaction. 

The experienced Big Childcare team develop flexible programs, along with input from the children, to allow children to experience a range of games, sport, craft, technological experiences, and many more fun and enriching activities. Some families require that their children have some quiet time to complete homework, which is also accommodated for. 

Please feel free to say hello to your Big Childcare Centre Manager, who will be your dedicated contact for all enquires related to before and after school care. 

For more information, please contact via:

Statement on Insurance at School

The Department of Education and Training (DET) does not provide personal accident insurance for students. Parents/guardians of students who do not have student accident insurance are responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including the cost of ambulance attendance/transport and any other transport costs. Parents/guardians can purchase insurance policies from commercial insurers. Personal property is sometimes brought to school by students, staff and visitors. This can include, but is not limited to mobile phones, electronic games, calculators, toys, musical instruments, sporting equipment, and cars parked on school premises. The Department of Education and Training does not hold insurance for personal property brought to schools and it has no capacity to pay for any loss or damage to such property. It is probably wise for valuable items to be left at home. For further information, please contact Mike Roleff at or phone 9637 2509.
