After school care

Ficino School provides a high quality after school care service, which runs between 3.00pm and 5.45pm throughout of the school year.

The Ficino After School Care (FASC) programme is designed to feel different from the school day, with a focus on good company and creative activities. The programme comprises a combination of homework time, rest, fun activities, exercise and afternoon tea.

Parents value the time their children spend at after school care because they go home refreshed, happy and well-fed with their homework already completed.

A typical FASC session is as follows:

3.00 – 3.30pm: Children sign in and have afternoon tea (provided)

3.30 – 4.30pm: Supervised free play, indoor or outdoor, occasional organised arts and crafts activity

4.30 – 5.00pm: Assisted / supervised homework time and quiet time (read or board games etc)

5.00 – 5.45pm: Supervised free play

Typical food offered*:

  • Wholemeal bread with spreads (marmite, peanut butter, honey)
  • Fruit pieces

  • Plain yoghurt
  • Occasional treats (biscuit or muesli bar or similar)
  • Water / milk

*Dietary needs can be catered for.

Fees per session: $18.50 (inc. GST).  A late pick-up fee will apply.
