Muckabout Before and After School Care

Our Philosophy

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

At Muckabout we aim to provide a service that is nurturing, stimulating and inclusive. We strive to support the growth and development of each child, taking into account their needs, culture and beliefs.


We believe that Muckabout should be a fun and safe place, where children have a voice and are involved in the decision making process around programming and planning. We recognise and value the importance of play and offer a program that enhances our children’s learning and development.


We value family partnerships and recognise the important link between home, school and community. We value the input of families and encourage involvement through engagement and networking.


All educators at Muckabout are expected to be positive role models and interact with and facilitate children’s play. We have qualified and experienced educators and pride ourselves on providing professional development experiences within our service.


Personal autonomy and lifestyle skills are scaffolded in our environment by providing opportunities for children to make choices and develop their independence. We are committed to contributing towards a more sustainable future by embedding practices that promote protection and preservation of our environment.


We endeavour to provide a high quality service by following the Children’s Services Laws and Regulations as well as implementing the My Time Our Place and National Quality Frameworks in all aspects of the services daily operations.
