    Vacation Care

Our kindergarten and outside school hours care will open alongside Star of the Sea Primary School in January 2022.

We offer a Queensland Government approved kindergarten program taught by a university qualified early childhood teacher. As a sessional kindergarten, we run during school hours and school terms, but kindergarten children can also attend before school care,after school care and vacation care.

Across kindergarten, before school care, after school care and vacation care families can choose the combination of days which suit them.

We believe each child is unique and learns differently, so our educators will spend time getting to know your child and family so that we can create engaging learning experiences that capture their interest and help them build new skills.

Throughout the kindergarten year your child will benefit from our close relationship with the school. Children enjoy regular visits and attending school events. During each visit your child will become more familiar with the school grounds and learn new skills – even how to use the water bubblers! Our educators will watch your child’s confidence grow as they become part of our new school community and prepare for prep.

In outside school hours care we offer a flexible, child-initiated program with educators incorporating children’s ideas, cultures and interests when planning each day’s experiences. Our team will drop off and collect children from the school grounds at Star of the Sea each day. Children are offered a healthy breakfast and after school snacks, which they help prepare.

Samantha

Hub Coordinator

I’ve been an early ed teacher for:
I started my journey at Star of the Sea Kindergarten and OSHC, Merrimac Hub as the Centre Coordinator. Prior to this I worked at our St Joseph’s Kindergarten and OSHC, Coomera Hub. Before moving to Queensland, I worked in a long day car for 8 years in Adelaide.
My favourite thing about being an early ed teacher is:
Creating a centre full of stimulating functional learning environments that children want to explore and learn in, one where families feel welcomed and valued and educators enjoy working alongside each other, children and their families.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
Every action a child shows us is a question, but why are they asking?
My favourite way to relax is:
Being in nature with my puppy Turbo, sometimes that’s a beach, a dog park or a hiking trail. We love being outdoors.
