Before School Care - In the School Library


Do you start work early or just need that extra bit of time in the mornings?

Drop off your kids to 3 O'clock Dash. We open each school day from 7am.

Do you find yourself rushing at the end of the work day battling traffic to pick the kids up?

3 O'clock Dash is open until 6pm each school day. Let the kids come up to us after school while you relax and do what you need to do. Weather its a bit of shopping, a bit of exercise or just some time to yourself.
