After School & Vacation Care
Leading the way in education on the Sunshine Coast
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you make as a parent. As part of your family from early learning through to Year 12, we take our role in educating your child seriously.
Take advantage of exciting after school and vacation care programs
When school’s out, the fun continues at After School Care and Holiday Club. Offered for children from Prep through to Year 6, these programs give you peace of mind that your child is being cared for in a supportive, fun and safe environment. Both programs operate from NCC early learners and our specialist After School Care Centre. No matter what level of care you require, we offer permanent and casual attendance options.
The end of the school day means it’s time for adventures, activities and play at After School Care. Whether your child wants to relax after a big day of school or needs to burn off all that extra energy, our flexible program is designed to suit them.
At NCC After School Care, your child will enjoy:
- Creative and stimulating activities
- A safe, secure and caring environment
- An opportunity to develop new friendships

Weekly plan and excursions
Your child can expect fun-filled school holidays at NCC. We have themed days and excursions, as well as barbecues each Friday. Every day your child can play with board games and blocks, read books, take part in sports activities and get creative during art time.
Here are just some of the theme days we arrange each holiday:
Hawaiian Day – Try limbo, take part in a hula-hoop competition, play pass the coconut and musical beach towels, and make heaps of art and craft.
Food Glorious Food – How amazing is food? We cook with food, play with food (don’t tell mum and dad), race with food batons, play a food memory game and make a delicious afternoon tea.
Dance and Shake – This day is all about music and movement. There’s a crazy dance competition, musical games and a chance to make your own instrument.
Spy Day – There’s mystery afoot on Spy Day. Crack the secret code, create spy badges, write in invisible ink and make a set of special spy binoculars.
