Ivanhoe Primary operates an excellent Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) program.  Before School Care is conducted each school day between 7.00am and 8.45am with Breakfast provided for children who arrive before 8.00am.  After School Care is between 3.30pm and 6.00pm with Afternoon Tea provided.

We endeavour to provide the highest quality childcare in a safe, enjoyable, stimulating, and caring environment. The program includes a wide variety of activities that are thoroughly prepared and implemented to meet our children’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs. In this way the program complements the school’s activities and is consistent with the school’s policies and practices.

Ivanhoe Primary OSHC is registered with the National Childcare Accreditation Council to participate in Outside School Hours Care Quality Assurance.  This service is approved to provide education and care to 120 children. Places are in high demand and are limited to 120 (Before Care) and 120 (After Care). Children must be registered and unfortunately there is no guarantee places will be available.
