environment that enhances children’s development through a variety of
activities, such as sports, arts and craft, cooking and games. We follow the My Time, Our Place framework for school aged care, which concentrates on outcomes
such as developing a sense of identity, each child’s connection and
contribution to their world, children’s health & wellbeing (physical,
social & emotional), and children becoming involved learners and effective
