New opportunities arise as Mission Australia closes their Clarke Oval before and after school and vacation care centre. Following the unexpected closure of Mission Australia’s Before and After School Care Centre last month, parents now have a plethora of opportunities available.
Little Wattle Preschool and Child Care Centre was quick to step in offering a similar service.
Now, Sherpa Kids franchiseeMichael Rasmussen, has confirmed he plans to offer before school care, after school care and vacation care out of Sacred Heart Central School.
Mr Rasmussen, whose parents and sister and brother-in-law Jacky and Michael Sheahan live in Cootamundra, knew he was in a position to help when he read aCootamundra Herald article on the closure of the Clarke Oval facility.
“Irun two services out of primary schools in Camden and Campbelltown and provide fun, engaging and structured programs,” Mr Rasmussen said.
He hasalso recently secured the rights to open a Sherpa Kids serviceat Goulburn North Public School.
A primary school teacher by trade, Mr Rasmussen has also been a member of the Police Force before moving into Sherpa Kids.
Mr Rasmussen said the program will be open for all five to 12 year olds in Cootamundra.
He said the focus of the service is on education and care and is more than a babysitter.
Students are in a structured environment including dedicated homework time.
Ideal for Sacred Heart students and parents as the service will be located within the school grounds, Mr Rasmussen said staff will also be able to safely walk Cootamundra Public School students to and from school.
EA Southee students will be accepted into the program however a transport option has not yet been finalised.
Mr Rasmussen said he isworking hard to get the service approved as fast as possible to enable childcare benefits and rebates to be passed on to parents.
“We are also looking to employ suitably qualified people looking for a fun and rewarding career,” Mr Rasmussen said.
He is aiming to open the service by the end of May, if not earlier.
