Out of Hours School Care

PLC Sydney offers before and after school care services for parents who are unable to drop off or collect their daughters within school hours.

The after school service is run by UnitingCare Children’s Services (UCCS), a not for profit organisation that provides a planned program of play and leisure activities suited to all PLC Sydney students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6. 

Vacation care is also available for those parents who require childcare assistance during school holidays. This service is open to all PLC Sydney students in Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6 and their primary aged siblings.
