About BESC


Balmain East Out of School Care (BESC) is a not-for-profit community run provider of before school and after-school and vacation care services. We are located in the library of Nicholson Street Public School  


The children attending Nicholson Street have priority of access to the service, for Before Care and Aftercare, however when places are available in vacation care we are able to offer to Father John Therry Catholic School at Balmain.


We are an accredited provider of services and are registered with the Family Assistance Office (FAO). Our services are eligible for the Childcare Rebate Subsidy , and you are advised to contact Centrelink to see if you qualify for this. Here 


The Centre is owned by its members, and is operated on their behalf by a Management Committee of volunteers drawn from the Membership.  


A full time director carries out the day-to-day running of the centre, assisted by other staff drawn from our pool of accredited employees as required.
