Outside of School Hours Care
Our OSHC activity program is supervised by qualified and experienced staff. The children experience a range of creative activities such as crafts, music, games and videos when time permits. Homework and/or readers are supervised each day from Monday to Thursday. A nutritious afternoon tea is served each day.
Before school care – 7.15am to 8.25am
After school care – 3.15am to 6.30pm
St. Andrews Christian College OSHC service supports a fee system that is affordable and accessible to all families and ensures the service maintains viability. The Australian Government is providing financial assistance, through Child Care Benefit (CCB) which is income tested, but the Child Care Rebate (CCR) is not income tested and pays up to 50% of your out of pocket child care costs. The majority of families are eligible to receive CCR, families need to visit the Department of Human Services website humanservices.gov.au/childcare benefit or phone Centrelink on 136 150 to register for this help. Child Care Benefit can be received as reduced fees or a lump sum payment at the end of the financial year. This may be paid directly to our service, when a parent requests this set up through the Department of Human Services, leaving the gap to be paid to the service.
When a parent is unexpectedly late and their child/ren has been sent to OSHC, this charge will be sent home at the end of each week or as soon as possible.
Regular or casual users fees will be processed as a direct debit from your nominated bank account or credit card fortnightly, these statements will be emailed or sent home advising the deducted amounts on the statement.
