About Us

Bakers Hill Out of School Hours Care is a not-for-profit organisation started by a group of parents who saw a need in the local community. It took a year of hard work to setup!

We are very proud to be the first out of school care facility in the Wheatbelt.

Our office is located in the Bakers Hill Primary School Library.

Our Caregivers

Our staff place the health, safety and well-being of the children in their care above all other concerns.
