ABCC (After and Before College Care)
Located on St John’s Junior Campus, our After and Before College Care (ABCC) and Vacation Care services operate as approved services under that National Quality Framework and provide a safe and happy environment for children of the College.
After and Before College Care (ABCC)
We are guided by the Approved Learning frameworks (My Time, Our Place and Belonging, Being, Becoming) and aim to provide a balanced program at an age-appropriate level, where we work with children, families and the community to provide a wide variety of play and recreational based activities that meet the needs and interests of children in our care. ABCC works with families and the College to facilitate transitions between our services and extra-curricular activities provided by St John’s.
Our programs include a variety of in-house, incursion and excursion activities. The vacation care program and bookings become available to families 2-3 weeks prior to the commencement of the vacation care period. Our services are unable to provide care to children enrolled in kindy during the January vacation care period.
We encourage all new families to the College to enrol at ABCC (even if you do not require care) as this allows our services to provide care for your child should anything unexpected arise throughout the year (ABCC is unable to provide care to children who are not enrolled at our services).
