SMCELC is a community based not-for-profit early childhood centre. The centre is managed by a volunteer parent committee. The centre opened at 1 Bent Street in 1996 - it was built in partnership with the community and Snowy River Shire Council. The centre repaid a loan from SRSC and now leases the premises. We started our OSHC service in October 2013.

At the centre we recognise that we are part of a wider community. A community that helps children to thrive in a safe, secure and stimulating environment. Our expansion into Out of School Hours Care and the partnership with Jindabyne Central School reflects our commitment to the community and we hope that this service benefits you and your children.

We lease the primary school hall from the school on a daily basis, we have access to the room before and after school and during the school holidays.

The OSHC service operates under the Education and Care Services National Regulations and the National Quality Framework - in particular the OSHC component - 'My Time, Our Place'.

Under the regulations we are required to have policies in place and these are available for you to view and have input into.

An Enrolment form for  2016  can be found in the Parent Information section of our website. If you would like to meet and discuss any aspects of the service with the Director or committee please call 02 64562569 or email

Further information about OSHC including hours, fees and our program can be found in the Parent Information section of our website.

We offer diverse recreational programs designed to extend and enrich the well being of school age children in line with "My Time, Our Place".

Our OSHC service aims to provide a home-like atmosphere within a caring and stimulating environment with highly trained staff and experienced staff.
