Before and after school care

Welcome families and community members!

Menai Before and After School care operates during school terms and is a not-for-profit organisation. We have a large, dedicated room that is well-resourced and features a covered veranda area which is perfect for afternoon tea and quiet outdoor activities.

Our Out of School Hours (OOSH) programs are planned by staff in consultation with the children in order to offer a balance of structured and unstructured activities which aim to provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment.

The centre is fully accredited and follows the NSW Curriculum 'My Time, My Place' which is in accordance with the mandatory NSW Regulations. 

Through 'My Time, My Place', the educators will assist your child to develop as strong sense of their identity, connections with their world, a strong sense of wellbeing, confidence and involvement in their learning and effective communication skills.

Some of the activities the children can participate in are:

  • ball games
  • sports/outdoor games
  • indoor games
  • drama
  • construction
  • art and craft
  • computers
  • cooking
  • opportunities for quiet pursuits such as homework, reading and relaxation corners.
