The Out of School Hours Care Program operates from “The House” which is in the School grounds facing Third Avenue, St. Peters. It offers regular Before School Care, After School Care, Occasional Care and Vacation Care for the children of East Adelaide School and the local community.
After school activities are less structured than those offered during the vacation periods, to allow the children to ‘wind down’ after the school day.
The programme’s activities are designed to meet the interests of children aged 5-12 years. Children are offered the opportunity to participate in leisure and recreation activities (eg. art, craft, games, gardening, cooking, drama) in a ‘homelike’ atmosphere.
Excursions are made locally and further afield, during the vacation periods. Nutritious snacks (sandwiches, fruit, etc.) are provided daily.
For After School Care, the reception and year one children are collected from a central location at the School each day by an After School Care staff member and are taken or directed to “The House”.
