Supervised After School Care

Do you finish work after school hours? Are you looking for after school care in the Castle Hill area? Look no further! IELA is an innovative educational and lifestyle facility.

At IELA, we understand the demands and expectations of modern-day family life. Our After School Program was developed to provide the kind of after school environment that we would like for our own children and family.

Keep your children safe, stimulated and learning with IELA’s after school programs! We are not an ordinary after school care facility. Our services provide opportunities for children to be exposed to and involved in extracurricular activities that can improve and enhance their existing academic abilities as well as introduce them to a range of other educational activities, such as our self defence, anti bullying resilience program.

During our schedule, your child can take part in a range of activities that will have their young minds thriving. Amongst a variety of fitness and educational components, we enforce dedicated homework time, supervised by qualified teachers.

Extracurricular activities in Health, Fitness, Self Defence Martial Arts and our unique Anti Bullying/Resilience Education program, which has been extremely successful in schools throughout NSW. In conjunction with this, IELA also has a comprehensive STEAM program for children aged 5 to 12 years.

Facilities for our after school care programs and classes create an engaging and exciting environment for young minds to thrive. They’re a winning alternative for parents and children alike, allowing them to develop new interests and build lifelong friendships.

An IELA staff member can collect children from a designated pickup point at their school and escort them to the centre either by an IELA designated vehicle OR by foot within walking distance.

Children can arrive at our centre by other means if needed, e.g. escorted by a grandparent, family member or friend.
