Kilbarrack Community Development Project

The purpose of Kilbarrack Community Development Project, also referred to as Kilbarrack Children’s Project, is to provide an after-school program for children in the community. It is a community service and is classified as a school-aged childcare service.
The KCDP aims to provide a safe and inclusive environment where children are supported in their holistic development through play, choice-based programming, and encouraged to have fun.
St Benedict’s Resource Centre is very proud to have an important service catering for the local community here in our facility for over 20 years.

The service operates two rooms; Kool room for ages 4-7 and Goal room for ages 8-12, at times it is necessary to alter the age groups due to the age ranges of the children. The service operates on a 1:12 ratio with a maximum capacity of 72 children. There are nine employees.


The program and activities offered are varied, children are given choice in their activities, and staff work in collaboration with children on deciding on programs and activities such as arts, crafts, physical activity, computers, homework support, board games, free play, yoga and a summer program during the month of July.
