After School & Vacation Care

We believe that providing a GISS After School & Vacation Care program is another way to enrich your child’s school life experience as children have an extra opportunity to socialise and develop their interests & skills in the familiar bilingual environment at GISS.

Program

At GISS, we provide tailored enrichment programs to our students after school and in the school holidays that include both planned and spontaneous activities according to children's interests, & stages of development.

Activities range from construction, creative arts, DIY projects, science experiments, cooking, gardening, music, sporting activities to fun excursions. Our students learn, have fun and connect in a safe and inclusive environment.

My child absolutely LOVES ASC – he is always so happy to go and impossible to collect at the end! It has made a huge difference to me with my work timetable. Thank you

GISS Parent

The educators are incredibly attentive and caring and manage to bring different age groups together while at the same time also allowing everyone to find their space in the group. Mila & her team are just amazing and we couldn’t be happier with the care they provide.

GISS Parent

The After School Care Program at GISS has been really great for us so far as it gives us so much flexibility regarding work without impacting our schedules for pick-up, knowing that our son is being looked after in a safe, familiar and bilingual environment where he socialises with his friends and other kids from the school.
