After Kinder Care (AKC) 

About the program

AKC is offered to support families requiring longer hours for their child.

Given attending children are often tired after a big day at kinder, AKC has a slower pace. Just like our regular programs, activities are planned around the interests of the children attending, but we also provide opportunities for the children to rest and engage at a ‘slower pace’ if that is what they need.

AKC is planned and led by Denzil Don Kinder educators. AKC follows on from all kindergarten sessions until 5:30pm. It is not available during the term break.

Sessions and fees

Sessions can be booked permanently (for the whole term) or casually (ad-hoc). Permanent sessions are $16.50/ hour, and casual $20/ hour.

Permanent bookings receive priority of place. As we are not childcare, the childcare subsidy can not be claimed for AKC.

How to book

Permanent bookings: AKC registration forms will be emailed to all families two weeks prior to term end for registration for the following term. Permanent bookings will be invoiced in full and must be paid prior to the first session your child attends. Places may fill quickly so please register your child immediately if you know you will need AKC. We cap groups at 15 children and cannot offer flexibility with this.

For term 1, the registration form will be sent during orientation week. We recommend, where possible, families consider waiting until their child has settled into kindergarten before registering them for AKC. We understand that this may not be possible for all families.

Casual bookings: can be made up to 2-hours before a session. Children must be registered casually prior to attendance. Terms of use including how to book are available on the Casual AKC Registration form.

All sessions are capped at 15 children. This includes permanent and casual bookings.
