Our child care service is available for limited hours during school holidays, for students of Carinity Education – Southside.

Our curriculum: We offer a quality, play-based early education program based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) Belonging, Being, Becoming.

Additional services: Referrals, transport (where available), meals, snacks, nappies, parenting education and support.
