New before and after school and vacation care service for Kariong

Coast Community Connections, in partnership with Kariong Public School, has opened a new Before and After School Care and Vacation Care service at Kariong Public School.

Located on the school grounds, the Before and After School Care service will be available every weekday from 6.30am to 9am, and 3pm to 6.30pm.

The Vacation Care Service will commence during the April school holidays and will be available from 7am to 6.30pm.

Due to the convenient location, children will no longer be required to travel from the school – past driveways, passing cars, or in the rain – as they will be supervised by qualified educators in a large, dedicated facility within the school grounds.

Coast Community Connections now operates one long day early learning centre, four outside school hours care services and two vacation care services across the Central Coast.

CEO, Bruce Davis, said with children’s care services already operating in three other Central Coast locations, the organisation is pleased to be able to extend the offering to the Kariong community.

“With over 30 years of experience in children’s services programs, Coast Community Connections takes a holistic approach to its childcare services and is guided by the input, ideas and belief systems of the child, the family and the educator,” Davis said.

“Our philosophy and programs are focused on fostering children’s wellbeing and development through recreational experiences and learning.

“With childcare services being limited on the Coast, Coast Community Connections is pleased to be able to add a fourth service location, to provide even more options to support busy parents within our local community.”

Coast Community Connections provides life changing community services caring for people from all walks of life across the Coast.

The local, not-for-profit, registered charity has been a leading provider of quality care to the Central Coast community for 45 years with longstanding connections to schools.

As a large local employer, Coast Community Connections provides over 80 jobs to staff who all live on the Central Coast.

It also uses more than 300 local businesses, ensuring that they support the local economy wherever possible

Among its offerings are youth and counselling services as well as aged and disability services, including home maintenance and modifications.
