Inspire Carlingford is an outside school hours care provider located in North Rocks, New South Wales. The centre provides after school care and vacation care only. Services Inspire Carlingford operates from Muirfield High School and also caters to Murray Farm Public School, Carlingford West Public School and North Rocks Public School. The goal for educators is to provide children with lots of space to learn and play, while at the same time allowing them to get creative and have fun. You’ll find a range of activities are planned to keep children happy, including science experiments, cooking, wood work, drama and sport, arts and crafts, dancing, games and much more. There are also regular incursions and excursions, including visits from the Guide Dogs, RSPCA, Fire Brigade and the Police. Inspire also provides a Homework Club which is a homework program developed by primary school teachers that’s designed to build confidence and enhance study habits. Homework rooms are dedicated spaces that are supervised by an educator, with the goal of children being able to complete the homework that has been set by their school, while being provided guidance along the way. Inspire also offers martial arts lessons that encourage good health and fitness. These lessons are based on taekwondo and help to improve balance, teaches self-respect and discipline, incorporates anti-bullying and self-defence and builds confidence in children. School holiday activities also includes martial arts themed days, as well as arts and crafts, cooking school, colour run, obstacle courses, team-work skills days and kid’s parties. Nutrition Policy We encourage and promote healthy eating. To find out more, contact the centre.
