Working Together

Outside School Care NT is a Territory owned and operated provider of after school, before school and vacation care programs. We focus on providing high quality care programs to Schools and parents in the Darwin and Palmerston area. Our teams deliver fun and stimulating activities in safe environments that meet or exceed National Quality Framework (NQF) standards.

The Right Choice for After School and Vacation Care

Your Child’s safety is our number one priority – providing a safe and secure environment underpins everything we do. Our mature teams are fully engaged with the children in our care – we don’t accept passive supervision.

All our policies and procedures have been designed to comply with the National Quality Standards. Every member of our team hold current working with children clearances and are trained in supervisory and behaviour management techniques as well as having first aid, asthma and allergy awareness training.

Alawa-Wulagi Bus Service continues in 2024
