Outside School Hours Care

After School Care

This program will operate every school day during the term from 3:15pm until 6:00pm. The program will be run at the school, using school facilities and normal school rules will apply. On the last day of each term the hours of operation will be extended to coincide with the earlier dismissal of students.

 

The Program

The After School Care staff plan a varied and exciting program that will appeal to the children. There will be a major activity each term plus a number of smaller activities.

 

This service is being provided to cater for a need expressed by parents and your support will be required to ensure the program is successful.  Activities are selected to enable children to enjoy their time in the program.

 

The After School Care staff has demonstrated a commitment to working with primary children and will ensure the programs are designed to meet the needs of parents and children.

 

Enrolment of children

You will be required to complete an enrolment form. Please take your time with this and include all

information so we can ensure the best care is taken of your children.

 

Booking In

There are two types of bookings - Casual and Permanent

Where your child has a permanent booking or has previously booked into the program but their attendance on a particular day is no longer required, the parent or guardian shall contact the school prior to 1:00pm otherwise a fee for the session will have to be charged.

If your child attends on a casual basis you are requested to contact the office and book in prior to 9:30am.

We realise there will be times when this is not possible and bookings maybe taken until 1:00pm.

 

Picking-Up Children

All children must be collected from the school by 6:00pm. This will be strictly observed as our workers hours finish at 6:00pm. If your child is picked up by somebody other than the parent or guardian we will require written permission from the parent.

A charge will also apply for parents who are continuously late picking up their child/ren.

 

Fees

Our program is under the regulations of the Family Assistance Office.(FAO)   As a result of this care, families are able to claim Child Care Benefit (CCB) to assist with the cost of child care.  Under the new Child Care Management System, parents are encouraged to register with Centrelink.  

If you wish to receive fee reduction, you must contact Centrelink by phoning 136 150 and quoting our

After  School Care Service Provider Number 407 123 523J.

It is in your best interest to register as no action will result in your paying the full fee of $12.00 per child per session.

 

Refreshments

At this stage parents are required to pack extra healthy refreshments (eg fruit, health bars) for their child to have in After School Care.   Plenty of fresh water is available.

 

Payment of Fees

Accounts will be issued to those attending.  Accounts should be paid fortnightly to avoid high accounts at the end of the Term. Accounts can be paid at the office. Receipts will always issued.
