Before and After School Care
MACC offers both before and after school care for students from Prep to year 6. We are also opened during the school holiday periods for Vacation Care. The service is run by Camp Australia, the largest before and after school care provider in Australia. The staff members are equipped with Early Childhood education qualifications along with OSHC training and years of experience in the industry. Both Before and After School Care, and Vacation Care are fully rebatable.
Before School Care
MACC Club is opened each morning during school term from 6:30am until 8:20am. The staff have developed a terrific program to welcome students to school early each morning, including a nutritious breakfast and warm environment to start the day.
After School Care
MACC Club operates in the afternoons during the school term from 2:55pm till 6:00pm. A nutritious afternoon tea is offered to all students attending. The program focuses on a range of activities and opportunities which encourage children to explore new interests, practice life skills and also to have fun! The staff are more than happy to assist in homework or any other skills that you feel your children would like to practice or grow in – but please understand that we cannot force your children to do their homework. It is encouraged, not forced.
At MACC, the option of Vacation/Holiday Care is also offered to all the students from Prep to Year 6. During the school holidays, we operate from 6:30am till 6:00pm. We ask that parents and carers please pack a nutritious morning tea and lunch for your child and to keep in mind that they will be in care for a substantial amount of time. We will also be providing breakfast on these days from 6:30 till 9:00am as well as afternoon tea from 3:00pm. Holidays are for the children to enjoy and have fun, and our program provides a wide variety of different activities for all children to enjoy.
To view our holiday program, please visit the Camp Australia website and type up ‘Mount Annan’ to find out what exciting adventures await your children.
We understand that our youngest members of the college may find this a little daunting and overwhelming. We want to reassure parents that the staff at Camp Australia have transitional programs which help your child find comfort and confidence in transitioning between prep and after school care. In the mornings, prep children are walked directly to their class teacher from the MACC Club room (above the church auditorium) to their classroom. Kindergarten and other students wishing to walk with a staff member also have that option until we feel that independence is ready to be encouraged.
There is constant and consistent communication between the administration staff, teaching staff and Camp Australia staff to ensure the safety and wellbeing of each student attending.
The school cannot take bookings as it is all done via Camp Australia (phone or online). However, the school is more than happy to relay a message to your child if you need to let them know that they need to attend MACC Club in the afternoon.
We encourage parents to register online even if you think you won’t need it. It is better that Camp Australia staff are already equipped with the current and correct information of your child if ever you need to book them in.
Please be aware that when you registering your child online, you will be required to provide as much details in relation to any medical or family information that we need to be aware of. If your child is anaphylactic, asthmatic or has any other allergies, please be aware that you will also need to complete other medical documentation. You will also be required to provide any medication that pertains to your child medical conditions. All medication needs to be labelled with your child’s name and will be placed in our medications box. Please understand that your child’s medication in the school top office is not an option. We ask to provide another set of medication solely for before & after School Care.
If you have any other questions, concerns or would just like to chat about your child’s progress in MACC Club, please do not hesitate to contact the coordinator via email or phone.
