Groves Christian College runs a Before & After School Care program for the convenience of our families. We do this to better serve the needs of the school community. “Before School Care” is held at the Early Learning Centre and “After School Care” is held in the H Block Hall on Campus 1. Before and After School Care caters for all students from Prep to Year 6.
