Charnwood Dunlop School

Before and after school care at Charnwood Dunlop School.

Charnwood Dunlop out-of-school-hours care

Our out-of-school-hours care program at Charnwood Dunlop School provides quality supervised care for children from preschool to Year 6.

Our service is located in the school hall and surrounding outdoor areas, and children can participate in indoor or outdoor activities of their choice. As all children are in the same space, younger children get to enjoy a taste of big school and spend time with older siblings.

Food and nutrition

We know the importance of good nutrition. We provide a healthy breakfast and afternoon tea and can cater for varying dietary requirements.

Children contribute to menu planning and sometimes have their own cooking adventures.
