After school care all fun and feathers for kindy kids
DAYS in the schoolyard have grown a little longer for some Warwick Community Kindy kids, with a new after-hours program now on offer.
Director Jenny Drewett said the introduction of the new after school care, which extends pick-up time from 2.40pm until 5pm, was introduced to accommodate an overwhelming demand from parents.
"Parents are very busy and a lot of people don't have extended family members to rely on," she said.
"This gives parents the opportunity to finish work and we offer it at a very minimal cost as a service for our parents."
Program co-ordinator Fiona Woodley said the kids spend the afternoons visiting the resident poultry, playing games, exploring in the garden and even brushing up on their cooking skills.
"It is really about what the children want to do," she said.
Mrs Woodley has joined the centre to lead the program this year and has a career in the industry that spans 12 years.
