Out of school hours care

Morningside State School P&C Association runs the Outside School Hours Care program. We welcome you and your child to what we trust will be an extension of your home. By working together we will provide an environment that promotes quality care to the individual child. This care program runs before school from 6.30 am and is open after school until 6 pm. We also offer a weekday program for vacation care and pupil free days from 6.30 am to 6 pm. Our care program is closed for all public holidays and for two weeks over the Christmas holidays. Please contact us on (07) 3899 9066 or via email for more information or to obtain an enrolment form.

Our philosophy, we:

  • believe that each child is special and precious and has the right to be happy and well cared for in the absence of their parents.

  • believe that each child should have the opportunity to develop a healthy and positive self-esteem. We identify the importance of early to middle childhood and the value of play in the learning process.

  • support the right of children with special needs, to participate, consistent with their abilities in outside school hours care programs. We aim to accept and respect each child irrespective of race, religion, family background or appearance.

  • believe in providing a balanced, relaxed and safe environment where children can play and enjoy their time at outside school hours care.

Our licensed capacity is 107 children per service and we are licensed under the Education and Care Services National Law Act 2011. We must comply with the Education and Care Services National Law Act 2011 and the Education and Care Services National Regulations 2011.
