Learn more about before and after school care, and how to find a provider.
Before you apply
You need to have confirmation of your place at a primary school before applying for any before or after school care (BASC) options
BASC operates in more than 750 public schools in NSW. Additional services are provided at offsite facilities close to schools.
They provide a mix of before and after school hours care as well as onsite holiday care for students.
You can also check the school’s website for more detailed information about:
- what type of care is provided
- where the care centre is located as it may not be on the school grounds
- its operating hours.
Eligible families can get help with the cost of BASC through the Before and After School Care voucher program.
As well as BASC services, there are Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) hubs regularly opening onsite in NSW primary schools. You can check current locations of OSHC hubs.
