Pitstop: Outside School Hours Care and Vacation Care

Be cared for

Pitstop is Glennie’s Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) service. Pitstop is a place where children can stop, refuel and refresh. The Pitstop Co-ordinator oversees a team of educators who are qualified and committed to providing a professional service.

Parents can be confident that their children are being cared for in a safe and supervised environment. During school holidays there is a Vacation Care program made up of engaging activities for girls and boys to enjoy. A new and engaging Vacation Care program is developed in preparation for each school holiday break.

Our Pitstop service caters for school-aged children before and after school and during holiday periods. Our Kindy Care program provides after school and vacation care for three to four-year-old children.

Pitstop is located in a customised building converted specifically for the purpose of providing a fun, safe and home-like environment so children can enjoy a break from school. Kindy Care operates from the Glennie Prep Room and offers a play based program following the Early Years Learning Framework.

Outside school hours care is governed by the Office of Early Childhood and Care (OECEC). All children must be enrolled in OSHC before using the service. Enrolment forms can be obtained from the School. Pitstop is registered with Centrelink allowing parents to receive the Child Care Benefit.
