After Kinder Care (AKC) 

About the program

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

AKC has a slower pace in recognition of the fact children may be tired after a long kinder session. Like our regular programs, activities are planned around the interests of the children attending. We also provide plenty of opportunities for the children to rest and move at a ‘slower pace’ if that is what they need.

AKC is planned and led by Denzil Don Kinder educators. It follows on from all kindergarten sessions until 5:30pm (exception: Orange Group, Monday).

It is not available during term break.

Session types and fees

Sessions can be booked termly (for the whole term, paid up front) or casually (ad-hoc). Permanent sessions are $20/ hour, and casual $26/ hour.

Termly bookings receive priority of place. As we are not childcare, the childcare subsidy does not apply. 

How to book

Termly bookings: AKC registration forms will be emailed to all families roughly two weeks prior to term end for registration for the following term. Permanent bookings are invoiced in full and must be paid before the first session your child attends. 

For term 1, the registration form will be sent during orientation week. We recommend, where possible, that families wait 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. Once registered casually, children are registered for the year. Terms of use including how to book are available on the Casual AKC Registration form.

We cap group numbers at 15 children and cannot offer flexibility with this.
