About Us

Our Centre

We operate onsite at Turramurra North Public School, providing Before and After School Care as well as Vacation Care for children who in the Turramurra North Public School Community.

Our centre is an Incorporated Association managed by a sub-committee of the P&C, on a non for profit, community basis. The Centre is supported by a Management Committee made up of volunteer parents, who have children attending the centre as well as staff representatives. We are an approved centre, which gives parents the ability to access Child Care Subsidy (CCS) as a fee reduction where applicable.

We constantly strive to provide the best quality of care for the children who attend our centre by providing a fun and interactive weekly program in a caring and nurturing environment. We have a team of dedicated staff who are both experienced and passionate about working with children.

Before and After School Care

Our Before & After School Care operates Monday – Friday on school days, between the following hours:

Mornings: 7:00am-8:55am
Afternoons: 2:55pm-6:30pm

At Before School Care, the children are free to choose their own activities or participate in programmed experiences.

Whilst at After School Care, we provide the option of programmed experiences, free play, quiet time and space in the afternoon for the children to complete their homework. It is part of our Centre Philosophy to ensure that the children in our care are active and spending their time play-based learning. It is for this reason that homework time is available after 5pm. It is at your discretion as to whether you would like your child to complete homework at NTOOSHC. Please advise Staff, preferably in writing, if you would like your child to complete homework. We will endeavour to ensure they are encouraged to do their homework, but cannot force them to do so.

Meals

The centre is committed to healthy eating and regularly reviews the menu to ensure that the children receive well balanced drinks and snacks.

During the school term, we provide a nutritious breakfast for the children between 7:00am and 8:00am. We serve cereal and toast as well as occasional treats such as pancakes, bacon, hash browns and crumpets.

During the afternoon sessions, we provide the children with a nutritious and varied afternoon tea. Fresh fruit is also available every afternoon.
