Welcome to Ainslie's out of school hours care

The Ainslie Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) began in 1981 and is one of the longest running programs in the ACT. The high-quality programs and activities ensure the program is highly sought after, and places are limited, so booking in advance is highly recommended.

The new multi-purpose building housing Afters has direct access to the lower ovals and playing fields, school playground equipment, the sandpit and a super functional child-friendly kitchen.

Afters at Ainslie is licensed for 120 children. It is administered by a sub-committee of the P&C and Afters Director, Gemma Lockton. You can contact afters on 6249-1740 between 7.30 am and 6 pm weekdays and by email at info@ainslieoshc.com.au

After school Program

Afternoon tea is provided after school and is based on a seasonal menu followed by supervised play of indoor and outdoor games, arts and craft. The cost per day for after school care is $23 for permanent bookings and $26 for casual bookings.

Before school care

Before's at Ainslie is licensed for 60 children and runs daily from 7.30am to 9am. Children enjoy a relaxing start to the school day with a nutritious breakfast and a range of quieter activities. The cost for before school care is $11 day for permanent bookings and $13 for casuals.

Holiday Programs

Holiday programs are run at Ainslie each school holiday break. The cost is $65 per day, which includes a light breakfast, morning tea and lunch, all excursions/incursions and programmed activities. We ask that afternoon tea is provided from home. Further information and planned activities are found on this page closer to the end of term or from the Afters Director.
