Out of hours school care and vacation care services

Welcome to Abbotsford Community Centre


We are a dynamic out of school hours and vacation care service located on the grounds of Abbotsford Public School. The Centre provides a high quality programme aimed at creating a supportive environment in which our children are able to explore, thrive and have fun! We are licensed to care for 150 children and use a 1:10 staff to child ratio.


Before School Care

BSC is open from 7am – 9am. Breakfast is offered every morning and runs from 7am – 8.15am. We run a morning activity, targeted at making connections and building social skills, before we heading out the front children to enjoy some outdoor time or relax indoors.

At 8:30am we sign out children with permission to leave earlier and at 8.45am we all pack away and get our bags, ready to be taken to school by the Educators.

After School Care

ASC is open 3:00pm – 6:30pm during NSW school terms (excluding public holidays).

From 3:00 – 3:30pm children are signed in to ASC and served afternoon tea prepared by our dedicated Centre Cook. From 3:45pm-5pm is our program hour, where the children are split into stage groups and engage in activities from sport, to cooking to STEM that are planned by our Educators and Educational Leader weekly.

At 5pm, children are served an afternoon tea snack and activities are packed away. Children engage in their own self-directed play and learning until 6pm.

Vacation Care

Vacation care is open from 7am-6:30pm during NSW school holidays and pupil free days (excluding public holidays and two weeks over Christmas and New Years).

Vacation care adopts similar morning and afternoon routines to term time with a mix of incursions and excursions. We are in the process of creating our Spring program and will soon provide information on locations, transport and individual staff to child ratios based on the risk assessments.

Places can be booked by picking up the form from the Centre and returning it with your desired days selected. 

The Centre is committed to serving meals that are both healthy and delicious with a menu that integrates the children’s opinions and balances food groups. Our Centre Cook Andrea focuses on a different area of nutrition each day of the week including protein, vegetarian meals, carbs and healthy fats and acids like omega-3. The weekly menu is always posted on the board at the parent Sign-In area and will soon be available on the website. We serve afternoon tea at 3pm and 5pm daily, where we always have plates of fruit and vegetables on offer.

We have a dedicated Cook to prepare all meals for the children
