BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE
At Star Club we aim to create a safe, welcoming space for the children where they can feel a sense of belonging. Play, sport and relaxation are set within a social context and are valued as a means for children to explore, imagine, create and achieve. Educators aim to work in partnership with children, families and school staff to provide a stimulating, enjoyable and purposeful program. Star Club is available in 6 school locations in Sydney’s south eastern suburbs.
PLAY, RELAX AND LEARN
Educators aim to work in partnership with children, families and school staff to provide a stimulating, enjoyable and purposeful program, to:
- Develop a strong sense of identity
- Feel connected with and contribute to their world
- Have a strong sense of wellbeing
- Be confident and involved learners
- Be effective communicators
Experiences are based on children’s interests and include creative activities, sport, games, drama, music, dance, construction, cooking, homework and outdoor play. Spontaneous activities are encouraged and extended on.
Whilst children are encouraged to complete some of their homework during homework sessions, Star Club aim to provide a positive balance with other activities to stimulate both bodies and minds:
- Fitness and sport
- Social interaction
- Cognitive experiences
- Music, movement and drama
Our philosophy extends to our Vacation Care program where children from all Star Club schools come together at one location at St Agnes’ Primary School in Matraville during each school holiday.
A FUN SAFE PLACE
We welcome children from all schools, not just Star Club schools, offering experiences on and off site, between 7am and 6pm. We aim to cater to a broad range of age groups and interests through a varied range of incursions and excursions.
Specialty equipment is available to children for the day and for excursions, children travel by bus to their exciting destinations. Where appropriate, children are split into junior or senior groups to ensure they get the most out of the activities.
