What the service offers
A Breakfast Club and an After-School Activities Program which aims to bring children together in a friendly and safe place. Using life skills, the program introduces and encourages the skill development that will assist children now and in the future. Children also work with trained Child Services workers to produce projects and engage in learning around different topics connected to the Early Learning Framework (ELF), which includes problem solving, doing the dishes, cooking, craft, communication and social skills. Children are also encouraged to give suggestions, both positive and negative, around all areas of the program. Workers liaise with the children’s teachers to support them with their learning and offer workshops to parents that are relevant to their needs. There is also a School Holiday Program that includes cooking, craft and excursions (excursions require that an adult caregiver accompanies each child).
Who can access the service
Children up to age 12, and their families, who live in the Davoren Park area or who attend John Hartley Primary School or Mark Oliphant Primary School.
