After School Care

After School Care

Hamilton Christian School is proud to offer an After School Care program every day after school for HCS Students, from 3:15 – 5:45 pm (Venue to be advised in 2022).

Children can be booked in as a permanent booking, a casual booking or in emergency instances.

Each day is started with afternoon tea and some free play; this may be doing puzzles, playing board games or some time with Lego.

If weather permits, we play outside or start an indoor craft activity.  We aim to have an activity that ties in with our chosen theme; we also theme our afternoon's colouring and craft activities. Finally, we finish with free play, and if children would like, we can assist with homework.

Unexpected emergency booking:

3:15 - 5:45pm - $19

We understand that things happen, and from time to time, you need to book your child into after-school care - ideally, these need to be made within 24 hours of a session but can be made up to 12:30 pm on the day. These bookings will be charged at the casual rate of $19 with pick up by 5:45 pm.

Safety at school booking:

This is where a parent has not turned up to pick up their child from school by 3:40 pm. The child will be sent to afterschool care, and there will a charge of $19.

With all our bookings, Late fees will be charged at $1 per minute if a parent or caregiver is late from the agreed pick-up time. Abuse of this timeframe will void their future attendance.

Children will need to be signed out at pick up time by the designated caregiver. In the event of pick-up time changing or if the designated care giver is not able to collect - prior notice needs to be given

We will not be operating on public holidays, teacher only days or school holidays.
