My Time, Our Place


The My Time, Our Place – Framework for School Age Care in Australia is about making care services for school aged children better.

The framework helps care services to develop opportunities for school aged children to participate in leisure and play-based activities that respond to their needs, interests and choices.

My Time, Our Place is part of the Australian Government's National Quality Framework which is about ensuring children receive a high standard of education and care.

It is one part of the picture that will help Australia realise the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) vision that will see 'all children have the best start in life to create a better future for themselves and for the nation'.

Resources for families

Families looking for more information on the Framework can use the Families' Guide to the Framework for School Age Care.

Resources for educators

The Educators' Guide to the Framework for School Age Care is a self-paced professional development tool. It helps school age care educators examine their current practices through reflective practice and inquiry, and provides examples of high-quality practice.

The Promoting Collaborative Partnerships between School Age Care Services and Schools helps to promote partnerships between care services and schools.
