After Hours Care
Welcome to the Torrens Valley Christian School Out of School Hours Care Program. We aim to provide a safe, enjoyable, relaxed environment where students can grow to their full potential in a Christian environment. We work together with parents, assisting those who require childcare and ensuring they are happy with the service we provide.
The director of the program is Mrs Anita Zappia who can be contacted on 0403164426.
The program is for children aged 5 - 12 years.
The hours are 3.00pm—6.00pm on school days and 12.30pm - 6.00pm on the last day of each term
The program includes activities like art, craft, DVD’s, outdoor games and homework.
All children are provided with an afternoon snack on arrival after school. These snacks include such items as sandwiches, fruit, savoury biscuits and water.
Parents are responsible for informing staff via enrolment forms of any relevant medical history or allergies. We follow the school’s Sun Smart Policy with regards to the wearing of hats outdoors. We also follow the school’s Nut Free Policy and procedure for anaphylaxis.
OH&S staff will record all accidents in an accident report book. In the event of a serious accident, parents will be contacted immediately. A first aid kit is kept on site.
The Torrens Valley Christian School Behaviour Improvement Program for students applies to all students during After Hours Care.
All children must be signed in/out by a parent or guardian when arriving at Before School Care or leaving the school premises from After School Care. We meet at the under cover area and walk to the classroom located in the senior school building - room 7 (located in the timber building at the front of the school). Our play areas are the classroom, under cover areas, basketball courts, playground and the oval.

We will be focusing on self worth, social skills and respect for our environment.

Most importantly your child will be encouraged to enjoy themselves.
