The Before School Care (BSC) service operates at the East Tamworth centre only, which is located at Tamworth Public School, Brisbane Street. Childcare is available for children aged from 5 to 12 years old and is provided from 6:30am to 9:00am Monday to Friday.
Year Round Care is an approved service under National Regulations for Education and Care Services. The program follows the guidelines from ‘My Time Our Place’ the Framework for School aged Care in Australia. We ensure children’s time at our service is enjoyable, safe and inclusive environment.
BSC is approved for 25 children daily and there are two staff on duty at all times. All staff hold current qualifications including a current First Aid Certificate. Children from any school in Tamworth are able to attend this service. Staff from the Centre take the children to meet their school buses at the appropriate times.
Activities at BSC include board games, craft, construction sets and television. All activities are set by the childrens own choice. Breakfast is provided until 8:00am each day.
Bookings are essential for children to attend BSC. A Year Round Care Enrolment Form must be completed and booking times confirmed with the Centre staff. This form is suitable for enrolment to all three children’s services offered by Council.
Children with special needs may be eligible to attend the service under the Inclusion Support program. Contact the Year Round Care Co-ordinator to discuss individual needs.
