We support our working parents by providing before and after school care options to students attending the Early Learning Centre and Junior School. We have partnered with Camp Australia in the delivery of a high quality before and after school care program. All families who wish to use these programs, from the Early Learning Centre and Junior School, must be registered with Camp Australia. 

Before Care commences at 7.30am and students are escorted to their classrooms by Camp Australia staff, ready for the start of school at 8.45am (Early Learning Centre). Breakfast is available to students that arrive prior to 8.00am.

After Care is available until 6.15pm and ELC students are escorted to the Junior School library by Camp Australia and teaching staff at the conclusion of their school day (3.00pm). A healthy afternoon tea is provided at approximately 4.00pm.

At Strathcona, we support each individual girl to develop her own voice and identity, as well as health, mind and spirit. Learning is the heartbeat of our culture and throughout the history of the School each student has been instilled with the self-belief and resilience to embrace new opportunities and the confidence to pursue their passions.
