The Blue Umbrella is a parent-run, not-for-profit Out Of School Hours service established in 2016 and run in the beautiful grounds of Currambena Pre-school and Primary. We offer before and after school care as well as vacation care to the families of the school and to those in the wider community.
We have a license limit of 30 children in each session and an age range of 3 years old upwards, this means we are just like a big family. Many of the staff are parents of school children so the philosophy of Currambena is easily applied to the OOSH care. We have a strong belief that the time is not an extension of the school day but that the children are absolutely free to do whatever their imaginations desire.
We have a dedicated space within St Elmo’s building equipped with a small library and reading corner, enough craft supplies to satisfy the most creative of makers, a kitchen and music room, but our biggest resource is the glorious, natural environments within the grounds that allow the children’s curiosity and imagination to run wild and their spirits to soar.
