Coast Community Connections Opens New Childcare Services in Kariong Public School

Coast Community Connections, in partnership with Kariong Primary School, is opening a new Before and After School Care and Vacation Care service at Kariong Public School, commencing Monday 15 February 2021.

Located on the grounds of Kariong Public School, the new Before and After School Care Service will be available every weekday from 6:30am to 9:00am and 3:00pm to 6:30pm. The Vacation Care Service will commence during the April 2021 school holidays and will be available from 7:00am to 6:30pm. 

Due to the convenient location, children will no longer be required to travel from the school - past driveways, passing cars, or in the rain - as they will be supervised by qualified educators in a large, dedicated facility within the school grounds. 

The addition of the new Kariong Childcare Service sees Coast Community Connections’ offering grow to one long day early learning centre, four outside school hours care services and two vacation care services across the Central Coast.

Bruce Davis, Coast Community Connections’ CEO, said with children’s care services already operating in three other Central Coast locations, the organisation is pleased to be able to extend their offering to the Kariong community to continue to strengthen the support provided to families on the Central Coast.

“With over 30 years of experience in children’s services programs, Coast Community Connections takes a holistic approach to its childcare services and is guided by the input, ideas and belief systems of the child, the family and the educator,” said Mr Davis.

“Our philosophy and programs are focused on fostering children’s wellbeing and development through recreational experiences and learning.”

“With childcare services being limited on the Central Coast, Coast Community Connections is pleased to be able to add a fourth service location, to provide even more options to support busy parents within our local community,” he concluded. 

Coast Community Connections provides life-changing community services caring for people from all walks of life across the Central Coast. 

The local, not-for-profit, registered charity has been a leading provider of quality care to the Central Coast community for forty-five years with longstanding connections to local schools and the community. 

As a large local employer, Coast Community Connections provides over eighty jobs to staff who all reside on the Central Coast. Additionally, the organisation utilises over three hundred local businesses, ensuring that they support the local economy wherever possible.

Coast Community Connections provides a wide range of services to support the community including before and after school care, vacation care and long daycare, youth and counselling services as well as aged and disability services, including home maintenance and modifications. 

Coast Community Connections invites community members to meet the team, view the brand-new facilities and enjoy a free BBQ sausage sandwich on Monday 15 February between 4:30pm and 6:00pm.
