IMPORTANT - Please message the program phone ASAP if your child/ren are booked in for an After School Care session, but will not be attending.
We need to account for every child booked into our care. If a child does not arrive to After School Care in a timely manner our process is as follows:
- Check school attendance with the school office
- Call and text parents
- Call and text emergency contacts
- Escalate to a missing child incident and contact police
Your cooperation in letting us know in advance if a booking is no longer required is hugely appreciated.
