What do you do when your working day starts and school hasn't or when the school day has finished, but your working day hasn't? How do you keep your child busy during holidays?


Out of School Hours Care can cater to 75 of our Pakenham Consolidated School students each session. This includes Before & After School Care, and Vacation Care. We also utilise other areas of the school such as the Playgrounds, Gymnasium, Computer Lab, Performing Arts, and Master Chef Kitchen.  All our programs are planned under the My Time, My Place, and Frameworks.


Our services are subsidised by the Federal Government via the Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate Scheme.   Click here for more information about Child Care benefits.




Before School Care is the perfect place for our early risers.  Children that arrive between 6:30am to 7:30am can enjoy a well-balanced breakfast and are given the opportunity to participate in activities and team games untill 8:45am.


After School Care is always lots of fun. From 3:20pm to 4:00pm a complimentary well-balanced afternoon tea is provided with this session concluding at 6:30pm each evening. 


Educators collaborate with children to extend their life skills, and provide play and leisure opportunities that are meaningful while supporting their wellbeing learning and development.
