After Kinder Care (AKC)
About the program
AKC is offered to support families requiring longer hours for their child.
In recognition of the fact children may be tired after a long session at kinder, AKC has a slower pace. 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 move 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 term break.
Sessions and fees
Sessions can be booked permanently (for the whole term, paid up front) 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 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.
All sessions are capped at 15 children. This includes permanent and casual bookings.
