Plateau School operates a before and after school care programme. It is run as a service for our school families. The charges are kept to a minimum to ensure that all our families can make use of this service should they need to. Students can be booked in full or part time on a regular or casual basis. There is a slight reduction in the hourly rate, if there is more than one child in the family attending.

Facilities

Plateau School has a well resourced before/after school care facility that is run by staff employed by the school. They run a varied programme that includes swimming when our heated indoor pool is open, use of the playground, board games, construction, creative play and learning how to unicycle and use our ripstick skateboards.

Staff

Before School Care Supervisor -     Ineke Kruger
After School Care Supervisor    -     Jill Philpott
After School Care Assistants     -     Harry Homan and Ineke Kruger

Our Before School Care programme runs from 7.30am - 8.30am.

Our After School Care programme runs from 3.00pm - 6.00pm.

Students may be booked in on a casual basis (please contact the school before 2.30pm), or on a regular basis.  If your child is in regularly, but for some reason they will not be present on one particular day, please let the school know so that the After School Care Supervisor can be made aware they will be away.

Charges

Our charges are $5.50 per hour, per child (charged to the nearest half hour). We offer special rates for more than one child attending from a family.  Casual users are requested to pay on the day they facility is used.  Regular users are requested to pay weekly, unless other arrangements have been made with either the After School Care Supervisor, the Bursar or the Principal.

There is a penalty charge for those children picked up after 6.00pm.  This is $10 per child.  This goes to the Supervisor.
