Our dedicated Educators and Head Office staff ensure families and Schools needs are achieved and continues to growth through communication, partnership and quality delivery.
After The Bell, we are genuinely interested in the welfare of the children. Positive and frequent communication is essential. We view their opinion on our activity programs and breakfast/afternoon menus as equally important as their parents....after all; they are the ones who have to it our healthy food. You see, we work hard to ensure the children actually want to come to our Out of School Hours Care activities.
Our Star Quality Corporate Partners
Partnership is an overused yet frequently under-valued word. However, partnership is what we do best at After The Bell OSHC when we work with different businesses in providing child care. Our reputation depends on it.
Our Philosophy & Goals
After The Bell builds on high quality care practices for families and children that utilise our Before School Care, After School Care, Pupil free days and Vacation care programs. Through a supportive and inclusive community focused model, we provide families with an affordable, quality children’s service.
Our programs are inclusive, never exclusive as we celebrate the cultural diversities amongst all the children and respectfully acknowledge the various socio-economic backgrounds. We value the importance of play by providing creative and stimulating experiences whilst supporting the growth and development from primary to middle school. We value this stage of growth and development as an opportunity to further explore and develop life skills where children can reach their own individual potential.
After The Bell Aus are governed by the Educational and Care Service National Law and Regulation. These two documents can be accessed at each of our programs in the Parent Area as well as online through the Quality Assessment and regulation Division at http://www.acecqa.gov.au/national-law and http://www.acecqa.gov.au/national-regulation
After The Bell Aus also complies with the National Quality Frameworks and a copy of this can be accessible at the program in the Parents Area http://www.acecqa.gov.au/national-quality-framework
Star Quality Staff
After The Bell OSHC provide personal attention from all levels within the organisation. Our OSHC Educators and Assistants are all trained in first aid, anaphylaxis, asthma, child protection, food handling as well as having complied with police checks, VIT and working with children checks. Combining this with exceptionally trained and qualified senior management guarantees star quality staff.
After The Bell OSHC staff adopts an enthusiastic interest in all things that affect the school community. We are not too big to care for any school, their parents or their students. Our staff really cares.
Our Star Quality School Principals
If you are sceptical of our claims, simply speak with the Principals of any of our partner schools. They will give you their own unbiased opinion of our Programs and endorse After the Bell passion for the business of caring for school children.
As a Principal, log into your school for updates on program activities and to share knowledge of After the Bell at your school. Have a look at some of the programs we have refined for other schools we service...including those in rural Victoria.
Our Star Quality Children
The measure of our success is determined by what we refer to as ‘our shareholders’...the 5 to 12 year olds and 5-15 years old for our SDS children who attend our programs. Rather than reviewing the ROI’s, EBITs tax deductions, we measure the width and breadth of the children’s smiles, their level of enthusiasm and communicate their experiences with the CEO. At the end of the day, out contractual agreement includes the children and its imperative After the Bell meet their obligations as well as the Department of Education and Early Development.
