The centre is open Monday to Friday, 6:45 am till 8:45am excluding Statutory Holidays and between Christmas and New Years. The programme is situated at the OSCAR RECREATION HOUSE, 155 Disraeli Street.


Children experience an environment where they “Grow up as competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society.” Activities and experiences at Breakfast Club are child orientated and adult supported.

They are based upon children’s strengths and Interests.
