Cancellation

It is a family's responsibility to notify the OSHC staff of all cancellations. 
Please cancel any sessions where your child/ren are booked but will not be attending. 
To avoid being charged for a session that your child did not attend, pleases cancel at least at the end of the previous session. 
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. 
For Vacation Care, 24 hours notice of cancellation is required.
