The Department of Education wants to hear from parents about what type of before and after school care arrangements will support them most effectively.

What’s this about?

The NSW Government is working hard to deliver on its $120 million commitment to expand access to Before and After School Care (BASC) for public primary school children across NSW.

BASC services currently operate in about 720 public schools in NSW.

This government initiative will aim to fill gaps in access to services across the state, particularly in regional areas. It will also aim to clear waiting lists in areas of high demand.

Parents, school communities and providers will be consulted to find innovative solutions for creating additional places in more schools and build on the solid foundations of existing services.

This information will help identify areas where services can be expanded or there are enough students across a few schools to support a viable service.
