If a child is taken home from school due to illness the please notify the OSHC Service phone with a text message.
If no notification is given, the session will be charged.
Cancellations are important because of specific staffing ratios required during OSHC hours.

Child Care Benefit

Please ensure that any Direct Debit payments are easily identifiable - mark with child/rens name and whether the account is for OSHC or Vacation Care.

Families are asked to note that when fees fall behind a week, care can be cancelled unless there has been a discussion with the Director.
If your account is overdue, a reminder notice will be sent from the Management Committee regarding outstanding fees. If the fees are not paid forthwith, Families will be required to find alternative care.
