Before School Care - 7:00am-9:00am Monday to Friday
In the mornings children can arrive at LOSCCI from 7am onwards. Children are either transported by bus with LOSCCI staff to their school or released from the centre in time for each school's start time.
Kindergarten and Pre-primary children are accompanied by LOSCCI staff to their classroom and a staff member stays with the child until the teacher opens the classroom and the children are settled in the classroom.
Year 1 to 6 students are supervised to safely leave the bus or LOSCCI building and make their own way to their classrooms.
Parents are encouraged to feed their children breakfast at home but in the event that they are running late, parents are welcome to bring cereal for the staff to give your child (milk is supplied). Make sure you notify a staff member on arrival if your child requires breakfast.
Please see the fees page for current before school fees.

A program outlining a variety of activities is created and displayed on the notice board each week. All children’s ages, interests, religions and cultural needs are considered when writing a program. LOSCCI offer activities which meet all aspects of a child’s development including: physical, creative, exploratory, dramatic, cognitive and construction. Both indoor and outdoor activities are offered to the children. Children are also given the opportunity to perform activities by themselves or as part of a group.
Signing in and out
It is a legal requirement that that children are signed in and/or out of the centre each day that they are booked. LOSCCI uses the Qikkids Kiosk digital sign in and out system. Parents use their mobile phone number and a pin code to sign their children in and out. Only persons noted on the child’s enrolment form as authorised to collect their child will be able to use the digital system. For security and the safety of children, sign in/out information should not be shared with any other persons. Children are not permitted to use the sign in/out Ipad.
If a child is not signed out a LOSCCI Educator will sign the child in or out and the parents will need to confirm the attendance next time the child attends.
Collection of children
Children can only be collected from the cente by a parent or a person pre-nominated on your child's enrolment form. The person collecting your child must be 18 years or older. Photo identification is required for any person collecting a child that is unknown to staff and not the child's parent.
