School Age Care (SAC)

Welcome to the Heidelberg Primary School – School Age Care Program (SAC). We aim to provide your child/ren with a care and education program of the highest possible standard in a safe, secure, nurturing and stimulating environment. The program incorporates licensed, accredited and a highly regarded Before School Care and After School Care Program.

The SAC Program is provided at a minimal cost and enables parents and families of the school to pursue options leading to employment, training, recreation, and the pursuit of personal interests.

The SAC Program includes a wide variety of experiences that are planned and implemented in a friendly and relaxed environment, which accounts for children’s social, emotional, intellectual, language, physical and creative needs. In this way the Program endeavours to complement the school’s activities and be consistent with the school’s policies and practices.

The SAC Program is a licensed children’s service with the State Government and is required to adhere to National legislation, regulations, and quality standards. All staff/ childcare educators are qualified and experienced in caring for and educating primary school age children.

After School Care

The After School Care Program operates from 3.30pm – 6.00pm daily during school terms. A healthy afternoon snack is provided to children attending the Program. The After Care Program also provides an extensive program of creative and recreational experiences for the children.
