Welcome to Schools Out

The concept of School's Out is an exciting one that began in Canberra in 1994 as a vacation/holiday care program. Over the years School's Out has grown in stature and has provided numerous enjoyable programs for children during holidays and also in before and after school care centres.

Working with children can be a rewarding, challenging and enjoyable experience. At School's Out the philosophy is that children are a gift and should always be treated with dignity, respect and kindness. We strongly promote respect, tolerance, sportsmanship, social and personal development, positive friendships and of course fun!

School's Out services operate a program that is well planned, structured, safe, interesting for children, employs quality staff and conveys an atmosphere of warmth and friendliness. Children will respond to such planning and atmosphere and enjoy their experience and hopefully look forward to attending.

School's Out services are committed to also providing a quality service where:

  • The children's physical, emotional and social needs are met in a safe, caring and supportive environment.
  • Programs are designed to care to the children's age, skill, interests and abilities through a variety of challenging and recreational activities.
  • Children, parent/carers and staff are treated with respect and their individual uniqueness is acknowledged and valued.
  • The service encourages parent/carer and community participation. It welcomes open discussion on all issues relevant to the service's operation. Parents are invited to give feedback and contribute to the life of the School's Out service

The School's Out philosophy also strongly promotes health and fitness amongst children. In an age of computer entertainment and increasing obesity levels in children participation in sport activities and specialised coaching clinics in both vacation care and before and after school care is integrated into our program and has proven highly successful and popular with children and parents alike. This has been reflected in the growth of School's Out over the years.
