Welcome to Connells Point
Before and After School Care Centre

Connells Point Before and After School Care Centre is a not for profit organisation run by a parent management committee at Connells Point Public School.

Our Philosophy

Connells Point Before and After School Care Centre aims to provide a safe, healthy and respectful environment where each child has the right to be treated equally with respect. We endeavour to maintain positive communication and relationships between staff, families, children, Connells Point Public School and the wider community. We aim to provide a recreational play based setting with a program reflecting on children’s interests and requests through planned and spontaneous activities.

We aim to meet the learning outcomes of the My Time Our Place Learning Framework:

  1. Children have a strong sense of identity
  2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  4. Children are confident and involved learners
  5. Children are effective communicators.

The educators at Connells Point BASC treat all children equally and seek to create a warm, friendly and relaxed environment in which children can foster friendship, enjoy activities in a comfortable learning environment.

We believe:

  • Interactions between staff and children should be warm, friendly, professional and inclusive of all children and families.
  • There should be a positive relationship developed between staff and families
  • Staff should work efficiently as a team
  • Children should feel safe, secure and comfortable within their environment
  • The centre should provide regular learning and training opportunities for staff
  • The program should reflect the centres goals and philosophies and accommodate children’s daily routines, development needs with an understanding of middle childhood and the child’s need for play.
