This after school care course is designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge required to support and guide children's effective participation in school age care. This means working with children between the ages of 5 and 12 years old.

"I have just started your course, and I was previously studying the same course locally, but being a single mum, I found it a juggle with my three boys. Swapping online through Online Courses AUS was the best decision I ever made. It's so much more organised, and I can work my studies around my children. It's no longer a juggle trying to fit everything into my busy lifestyle. Brigid, that helped me prior to switching, was so friendly and helpful, which helped me in making my decision to swap from in-class to online. I enjoy the ease and the simple way the course is delivered. I can't thank you all enough for your help." - Robyn

A school-age care service is one that offers care and education for children between the ages of 5 years and 12 years. This usually coincides with primary school years, from kindergarten/prep to grade 6. School-age care services are also known as OSHC, Out of School Hours Care, Before School Care or After School Care.

If you want to become an educator working within this sector, our online childcare course, Before & After School care, is a significant first step.

More Content. More Skills. More Value.

All childcare lessons are presented in step-by-step learning modules perfect for studying at a pace that suits your lifestyle.

They’re perfect for people with busy lives and families who want to better themselves while unlocking better opportunities.
