Creche is managed by Outback Childcare, a program sponsored by RICE and based in Port Augusta. RICE in conjunction with Outback Childcare has an agreement with the Hawker and Orroroo Childhood Services for use of their buildings and facilities. Outback Childcare is funded by the Department of Education.
The creche is held at Orroroo on Mondays and Hawker on Fridays from 8.45am to 3.15pm throughout the school term.
Each creche is staffed to care for up to 19 children at each location. Creche falls under the Childcare Subsidy (CCS) system.
We are a nut aware service.
Please note we are a nut aware service, so do not bring any food containing nuts or traces of nuts.
Children learn and grow best in a safe and caring environment. Our program is based on the Early Learning Years Framework for Australia. Each child has a portfolio which contains observations, artwork, and other relevant documents to reflect their development and learning.
Remote creches are also available for community events such as workshops, training and meetings.
