Visit us today and let us show you around

Tamworth South Outside School Hours operates within the grounds of Tamworth South Public School and has Before and After School Care and Vacation Care. 

We’re open from 7am – 8:40am for Before School Care with breakfast provided, 3:10pm – 6pm for After School Care with afternoon tea provided and 7am – 6pm 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.

Louise Varano, Centre Manager

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

I have been working in the OOSH industry for 11 years. 10 of those years have been with Children First, having worked in both Hassall Grove and Shelly centres before beginning my management role in 2013.

My goal is to work with the educators to provide a fun, inclusive and welcoming environment that children of all ages can learn from and enjoy.

We welcome families to share feedback, comments, or suggestions at any time.

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