Star of the Sea Outside School Hours Care provides before school care, after school care and vacation care. We are situated in the grounds of the Star of the Sea Catholic School. We are proud to support the families and children of the school, parish and local community.

We run a flexible and adaptable child-initiated program incorporating children’s ideas, cultures and interests. We view each child as having preparedness, potential, curiosity and interest in constructing their own learning and in negotiating everything the environment presents to them. We provide guidance and support to children so they can discover, explore and create something new everyday.

Our centre strives to foster an environment that celebrates diversity and interdependence and we encourage children to value and respect the individual uniqueness, spirituality and contribution of others.

Leanne Collier

Coordinator

I’ve been an early ed coordinator for:
13 years.

My favourite thing about being an early ed coordinator is:
Being able to make a difference in somebodies life is one of the many things that makes my role as a coordinator fulfilling. I love seeing children’s worlds open up as they begin to realise they can achieve and their voices mean something. I feel this is important as children learn to make sense of who they are within a global community.

Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
I love relaying a child’s day to the family. I feel it is important to hear about the good things and by sharing the day with families they know that we are present in their child’s day. This creates and establishes wonderful relationships, which are vital for families when their children are in care.

My favourite way to relax is:
Spending time with my family, whether this is camping, going to the beach, watching a good movie or just chilling in front of the TV. This time is always more fulfilling when those that I love are part of it.
