5-12 Years: Out of School Hours Care

Growing Independence

Outside of school hours, children’s learning and sense of responsibility can flourish when they have the freedom and choice to engage in activities they enjoy with supporting educators. Our out of school hours care programs ensure school-aged children are provided with safe and fun environments to develop their social skills, confidence and personalities.

Why choose a Lifelong Learning Centre for out of school hours care?

While structured educational programs in classrooms accounts for a significant portion of academic progression, so much of what your child learns from a social, emotional and physical perspective comes from outside school influences. Lifelong Learning Centre’s out of school hours programs provide an environment for your child to relax, enjoy new social circles and engage in fun learning experiences.

We call this phase ‘Growing Independence’, where children are encouraged to:
  • Collaborate and consult with educators to build a sense of belonging and connectedness
  • Develop emotional confidence through participation, open communication and practicing mindfulness
  • Gain a sense of community by forming relationships with educators and other children
  • Communicate, share, cooperate and contribute
  • Progress foundational learning by exploring possibilities and problem solving, and lateral and divergent thinking

What’s provided at out of school hours care?

Each of our Lifelong Learning Centres are setup with various learning and play areas designed to encourage engagement, exploration and enquiry. There are also dedicated quiet spaces for ‘alone time’, homework, reading or study on a topic of interest. Our centre staff are always available to coordinate sports activities and games, answer any questions your child may have, encourage educational experiences and engage in conversations.

Each day is different at a Lifelong Learning Centre, and there is so much to learn and experience in our out of school hours programs. Your child will be inspired, encouraged, supported and make new friends, all while having fun!
