Changes to Aftercare in Term 3

At the beginning of Term 3, there will be three major changes to the aftercare program.  

-          The foundation students, currently in the art and Italian rooms will join the Juniors program located in the Biz – E – Kidz building

-          Year 3, currently with the Juniors in the Biz – E – Kidz building, will join the Seniors in The Flex located on the Southside.  

-          The art room will become a dedicated ‘quiet space’ (depending on demand) for homework and quiet activities such as drawing and reading. This will be available to both the Juniors and the Seniors. 

These changes are a strategy to adjust to the changing needs of children as they develop and to better tailor care to different ages. Biz – E – Kidz will ensure that the children are aware of these changes and extra educators will be on hand to ensure the transition runs smoothly.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or feedback about these changes.

Child not attending Biz – E – Kidz? Please let Biz – E – Kidz Know.

A reminder to families to get in touch with Biz – E – Kidz on 9329 5529 or 0400 838 448 to let us know if your child is not attending after school care. We chase up any no–shows as missing, which can be stressful and time consuming.
