Use another After School Care Provider that collects from Leichhardt PS:
WHOOSH operate a CCS eligible after school care service at Leichhardt Town Hall.
Enrol in an extra-curricular activity:
Dancearama- After School Dance & Drama Classes ‘My son loves Dancearama! It’s his favourite day of the week. The teachers are fantastic, full of passion and enthusiasm. The after school program they run is fun, educational and very organised. Providing a great alternative to LOOSH. I would highly recommend it.’
