Woden Community Service (WCS) provides a unique experience for children at Evatt School. We offer a 9am – 3pm Preschool program for children 3-5 years of age with a dedicated early childhood teacher. We also provide quality before school, after school and school holiday programs for children from 3 years old to Year 6.  

Evatt Preschool

Evatt Preschool Program offers a safe, secure and stimulating environment for your child and our friendly and qualified educators have your child’s best interests at heart. The structured program focuses on education outcomes and school readiness while providing a small group environment with a high educator to child ratio. 

Out of School Hours Care

Evatt OSHC provides a safe and caring environment with recreation based activities that allow for choice, spontaneity and flexibility. At Evatt OSHC, our programs aim to celebrate diversity and recognise that play, fun, and humour are vital to school age care. Our educators also recognise the importance of building respectful relationships with children, families, the community and the environment.  

Juniors Before School Care

Our Juniors Before School Care program caters for children 3 years old to Kindergarten. We serve a nutritious breakfast and offer inside and outdoor activities to engage your child’s brain as they start their day.

The program operates out of the WCS Preschool building. Our educators escort children who attend the ACT government preschool to the outdoor space and hand them to the preschool teachers, and escort kindergarten children to their classroom.
