Out of school hours care

Townsville Central Out of School Hours Care operates between 2.50 pm and 6.00 pm
Monday to Friday, and offers vacation care during most school holiday periods. This not-for-profit facility is managed by a sub-committee of the P&C, all of whose members have children who attend the facility.

The staff aim to deliver a high quality and affordable child care service for all families at Townsville Central State School.

Costs to access the service are on a permanent or casual basis.

Costs as of 1 July 2017 are:

After School Care Permanent $25 per day or Casual $35 per day

Vacation Care Permanent $48 + activities costs or Casual $58 per day + activities costs

Most families are eligible for and currently access the Child Care Rebate. The Rebate is not income tested and covers up to 50% of out of pocket costs, up to $7500 per child, per year.
