All of our staff undertake annual training to maintain the required first aid qualifications and undertake asthma and anaphylaxis training. Selected staff have undergone first aid and emergency training, and we are equipped to assist with administering medications to children as well as implementing, action plans where discussed, agreed and documented, between WSACC and the child’s parents/caregivers.
There are strict regulations governing what medications we can and can’t administer, so please discuss your child’s needs with our Centre Manager, Kathryn Mahoney.

At WSACC we provide nutritious, freshly prepared food from our well equipped kitchen. Some of the favourites include fresh fruit, cooked vegetables, hand made cheese crisps, spaghetti bolognese and more.
We pride ourselves on providing food that is fresh, not pre packaged or highly processed.
1. During School Terms:
Morning: From 7:30am to 8:20am breakfast is available – cereals, toast, and fruit.
Afternoon: From 3:00pm, afternoon tea is served, with a variety of fruit, vegetables, sandwiches, etc. (varies daily)
(Breakfast and afternoon tea are included in the normal fees for care)
2. During Vacation Care:
As well as the usual provision of breakfast and afternoon tea, a light morning tea is also served (these meals are included in the normal fees for care).
A Vacation Care lunch menu is also available each day (the cost of lunch items during Vacation Care are added to your fees account). Orders are taken daily upon drop off and signing in.
All special dietary requirements such as allergy management, cultural, moral or lifestyle preferences are catered for through negotiations with families.
Whilst we strongly encourage children to partake in our food program, some children do not wish to. We will happily negotiate with families around this.
WSACC’s food services are operated in accordance with PANOSH food safety guidelines both on premises and off site as required. WSACC food and nutrition program is also independently audited by an accredited Practising Dietician every five years.
This food safety audit assesses staff knowledge of accreditation guidelines, centre food safety policies, staff food safety training and practices in food preparation facilities, personal hygiene, safe food storage and preparation, meeting family’s needs and relevant information provision and cleaning procedures.
WSACC also maintains a Food Business Licence through Brisbane City Council.
Any general or specific dietary considerations can be discussed with the Service Coordinator, Kathryn Mahoney.
We also provide a service which allows families to order and pick-up essentials such as fruit and milk.
