Visit us today and let us show you around

Hassall Grove Outside School Hours operates within the grounds of Hassall Grove Public School and has 60 places for Before and After School Care and Vacation Care. 

We’re open from 7am – 9am for Before School Care with breakfast provided, 3pm – 6:30pm for After School Care with afternoon tea provided and 7am – 6:30pm during Vacation Care.

We create an environment that is homely, caring and stimulating for children from kindergarten to year 6. We pride ourselves on a strong curriculum, supported by the Australian Government’s ‘My Time, Our Place’ framework for school-age care.

Children are invited to join in a variety of planned and unplanned activities and are able to engage in experiences that are of interest to their age group. Children’s diversity is recognised and children are supported to explore who they are and who they want to become.

Vacation Care, which operates during school holidays is a great opportunity for children to engage with others from different schools within the community. It’s always a fun-filled calendar with many interesting activities provided, including arts and craft, cooking experiences, free choice play and a range of incursions and excursions.

Juanita, Centre Manager, Children First Outside School Hours, Hassall Grove and Shelley BlacktownJuanita Pearce, Centre Manager

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Interim Centre Manager of Hassall Grove, Tamworth South and Shelley Outside School Hours services.

I have been working in the Early Childhood Sector for 8 years, 6 of these in leadership. As an educator, I believe that children are capable of anything when given the correct resources to achieve their goals. I believe in creating an environment where children’s voices are heard, where they can be independent and learn skills that will support them for life outside of school.

I look forward to getting to know your children and being able to work alongside them.

I look forward to welcoming you to Children First and seeing your child reach their full potential with us.
