A little bit about us...
AFTER SCHOOL, SCHOOL HOLIDAYS, SATURDAY & FRIDAY
Kidspace is exactly that - A space where every child feels they belong, are safe, welcome and are free to have FUN !
And, they can have a break from their normal school environment.
We have amazing programs after school, every Saturday, school holidays & every month on Friday nights.
Our experienced teaching team deliver exciting, age specific programs which will leave your child asking to come back again and again. Children from all schools are welcome.
Kidspace is conveniently located in the centre of Caloundra's sports & recreation precinct, close to many of our city's great child based facilities.
We offer a wide range of inexpensive daily incursions & excursions - all of which provide valuable learning and life experiences for your child. These vary from program to program, but may include - Swimming, 10 Pin Bowling, Ice Skating, Rock Climbing, Archery, Trampolining, Challenge Ropes, Go-Karting and many more !
Our centre based activities include Art & Craft workshops, Ball Sports, Dance Classes, Cooking experiences, Table Tennis, Movies and much more !
Our daily program is informed and developed based on children's current interests.
Kidspace is approved by the Queensland Department of Education, and our program is developed from the ‘My Time, Our Place' Framework for School Aged Care.
As an Approved Provider of Outside School Hours Care (OSHC), our service is authorised by the Queensland Government to administer the Childcare Subsidy (CCS) which provides families with financial assistance to help meet the cost of our OSHC Service.
