After school care 

After school care runs on-site every school day. 

If your child is in Kindy or Grade 1, your child will be escorted to the Brown Hall (Gowrie Junior Hall) by their classroom teacher. Should your children be in Grade 2 or above, your child will walk themselves to the Cola. After School Care offers a variety of experiences from cooking, science experiments, gardening and sustainability Club, paint and messy craft, music and dance, sport and intentional group experiences, and so much more! Children are provided afternoon tea upon arrival, which will include a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, alongside popular meals, chosen through child suggestion. These may include frozen fruit yoghurt-cones, Singapore Noodles, Sushi Bowls, or other popular dishes voted for by children and families. Once all children are signed in, children have free option to participate in the planned experiences, and access to free-play in a variety of spaces from the Basketball Court, to the playground, to the Gowrie Kitchen!

After School Care operates from 3:00pm until 6:00pm.

Before school care

Before School care is held in the Purple Hall (Gowrie Senior Hall). Children are offered Breakfast each morning including carrying Cereals, Toast and Spreads. A few days a week, we also include a variety of Breakfast Club Specials! For these breakfasts, children have voted to have Pancakes, and a new addition of Mexican Breakfast Wraps! Similar experiences to those of After School Care are offered, alongside the option of free-play. At 8:30am, children allowed to go to school for playtime before classes commence. Children in Kindy are escorted to the supervising teacher by an Educator.

Before School Care operates from 7:00am until 8:30am.

Vacation care

The Vacation Care program is an exciting experience offered to children throughout each of the School Holidays, and often on Pupil-Free Days. Gowrie NSW ERKO OSHC offers an exciting holidays experience full of themes, incursions, excursions, and child-lead experiences fuelled by suggestions from educators, children, families, and the local community!

We love exploring children’s interests throughout the holidays and rely on feedback and suggestions from children to help choose all of our Incursions and Excursions. Flyers for Vacation Care are also available on the Gowrie NSW website.

Please Note: due to COVID-19, at this present stage, our program is not facilitating any Excursions to public venues.

Vacation Care operates from 7:00am until 6:00pm.
