Before & After School Care
What do we get up to at Baxter’s Buddies?

Basically, we have a lot of fun!

3:00pm

Pick up our buddies from Halswell, Ladbrooks, Aidanfield and Oaklands schools daily at the designated meeting spots.

Children are transported to 7 Oaks School in the Baxter’s Buddies vans/cars.

3:15-3:30pm

Healthy afternoon tea provided and drink of water and/or milk.

3:30-4:00pm

Those children whose parents have requested reading or homework supervision will be helped during this time. Children who are not required to do homework will participate in supervised free choice activities.

4:00pm-5:00pm

All buddies come to the mat at 4:00pm to discuss their play options for the day and also share news and we go over the behaviour of the week.

Each week the buddies have different themed activities. The upcoming themes are chosen by the children.

Baxter’s Buddies believes after school care should always be fun and fitness/interest focused and have age related activities.

Big Buddies – Between 4-5 pm our older (Year 4  and above) buddies get time to work on projects and get involved in activities and games that are related to their interests in the Art Room.

Bantum Buddies – The younger buddies in (Year 3 or below) that are supervised in the main classroom complete a fun art/craft activity related to the theme of the week.

Alternatively there is an option for all kids to enjoy outdoor based activities and/or sports.

5:00pm

Mat Time and Awards for the buddies of they day.  We have a weekly  behaviour value, e.g kindness or patience which we encourage our buddies to practice.

5:15 – 6:00pm

Supervised free choice until they go home.
