Before and After School Program

Conon Road Kindergarten provides a before and after school program, picking up and delivering to Manning and St Pius X Primary schools.

After spending a long day at school, children welcome the change in surroundings, which supports their wellbeing through providing a relaxed and secure environment away from school pressures. As most of the school day is inside learning, we spend most of our time outside.

We support a multi age group approach, so your child will be excited to join their siblings, who are already at the centre.

Our natural 800 sqm fenced outside area provides lots of opportunities for your child to explore , climb, and socialise with their friends and siblings.

We regularly visit the park next door for a game of soccer or football or just to play on the play equipment. Also the library visits offer the children opportunities to select books using their own library cards.

Pick up and delivery to St Pius X and Manning Primary schools

Pre-kindy, kindy and pre primary children are dropped off and picked up from their classroom to ensure safe transition into the care of an adult. Year 1 upwards are asked to transition to class once in the school grounds.

On pick up of year 1 upwards, children will meet the educator at the stage (St Pius) and outside the science room (Manning Primary School).
The children at St Pius X school walk over Ley Street, along Cloister Avenue and meet up with Manning Primary School children on the corner of Cloister and Duckett Drive. Together they walk down Duckett Drive to Craigie Crescent to our centre.

Weather conditions

Although we always seem to avoid heavy rain, it is recommended that your child bring a rain jacket. We would prefer no umbrellas as they can become a safety hazard.

During summer the children apply sunscreen and need to wear a hat before walking back to the centre. If your child is instructed to keep their hat at school, please have a spare one in their bag.

Nature & Play
Based Learning

Have your children explore their environment, experiment with new ideas, and find solutions to problems with our Play-Based Learning. Play is an essential part of early childhood development. It provides a fun and stimulating way for children to learn about the world around them. In a play-based learning setting, children are free to explore, experiment, and play in a safe and supportive environment.

Before and After School Program

Keep your kids safe and engaged when they’re not in school. After spending a long day at school, children welcome the change in surroundings, which supports their wellbeing through providing a relaxed and secure environment away from school pressures. As most of the school day is inside learning, we spend most of our time outside.

School Holiday Care

During the school holidays we provide care for children from 2 to 12 years old.  We take children from out of area as well as Manning and St Pius Primary schools.

We have programs for both the younger and older children.  We provide activities, incursions, and excursions. 

Flexible Sessions

At our childcare centre, flexible sessions are tailored to meet your family’s specific needs, whether that means enrolling for only a few days a week, choosing different start and end times, or combining different types of sessions.
