About West Ryde BASC
We are a non for profit, community based centre that provides before and after school care for the children of West Ryde Public School. Our centre is managed and run by a voluntary parent committee. We are an approved centre, which gives parents the ability to access CCS as a fee reduction.
We have a flexible weekly program that provides children with variety and choice. We believe that children learn and explore their world through play-based experiences, and therefore provide many opportunities for both structured and free play.
We constantly strive to provide the best quality of care for the children who attend our centre by providing a fun and interactive weekly program in a caring and nurturing environment. Our program aims to ensure children are developing all areas and is guided by the OOSH learning framework, My Time, Our Place. Our program encourages children to questions, explore and challenge themselves and their world.
We also have skilled members from the wider community run workshops and skill development over a term. We have run many sport skill courses including soccer, netball, gymnastics, hockey and basketball. We have also enjoyed cartooning, art and drama workshops!
If you or your child have any suggestions, skills or interests please contact staff, or contact us as we would love to incorporate these into our program.
Our centre achieved a Meeting Expectations rating in our 2019 Assessment and Rating visit. We have a team of dedicated staff who are both experienced and passionate about working with children.
