Pitstop: Outside School Hours Care and Vacation Care

Pitstop is a high quality, out of school hours and vacation childcare service operated by The Glennie School for children aged five to twelve.

Pitstop offers a structured and safe environment in which children are able to participate in both indoor and outdoor activities under the supervision of the centre's co-ordinator and assistants.

Before and After School Care

From 7.00am to 8.30am and 3.00pm to 6.00pm, Pitstop offers a range of indoor and outdoor activities.

Indoor activities can include a range of educational computer games, drawing, reading and puzzles and movies.  Some children use this time to complete homework and a quiet table is set aside for this purpose.

Pitstop uses the School's facilities for outdoor play. This includes use of the covered playground equipment, sandpit and undercover courts.

Vacation Care

School holiday time allows Pitstop to offer a number of vacation care activities:

  • excursions to the movies
  • picnics in the park
  • museum visits
  • indoor rock-climbing
  • ten-pin bowling
  • swimming at The Glennie Aquatic Centre
  • activities organised within the School grounds
  • cooking, gift-making, painting and special craft projects are some of the activities children can enjoy indoors, during school holidays.
