Before and after school care
Helping Hands Network is a leading provider of Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) in Australia. At many of our partner schools, we also offer adventure-packed Vacation Care programs during the school holidays.
Each of our services offer children a stimulating environment that promotes positive attitudes, personal growth, high self-esteem and respect for others. Whether your child attends every day or only once in a while, Helping Hands Network will always ensure that your child is safe, cared for and most of all has fun! During Before and After School Care, your child will also enjoy a delicious, healthy breakfast and afternoon tea every day.
What happens at Helping Hands Network?
Before and after a structured day at school, it is important for children to have the chance to relax and participate in activities they enjoy. That’s why we provide a selection of planned and free play activities, offering children plenty of choice. The experiences we offer teach children a variety of skills, through planned activities that are guided by the National Quality Framework.
Children are also given the opportunity to relax and play with their friends – and just be children! The environments are set up in an engaging and interactive way to ensure children have access to ample resources, such as art and craft materials, sports equipment, board games and much more.
Activities children love
We offer a diverse range of activities during Before and After School Care because we know that every child has their own idea of fun, including:
