The Orrvale Primary School Council has established an Outside School Hours Care program to open from the beginning of the 2021 school year. This program will run from the new STEM building and operate between the hours of 3:20pm - 6:00pm each school night. We believe that every family has the right to quality care that recognises and values the child as an individual and is responsive to the needs of families. We value the importance of play and the role it has in middle childhood development. The setting therefore needs to be a warm, secure, caring environment where the development of independence and self-confidence is fostered, and creativity and individuality are encouraged. The partnership between parent and carer is invaluable in the care and outcome for the child.
