OSHC Enrolment

Enrolment forms and a Family Information Package which contains information on fees, policies and procedures is available from the OSHC or the Front Office. We ask that you visit one of our sessions with your child to meet the educators, become familiar with the OSHC room and for us to gather all the information we require.   

An OSHC registration fee of $15.00 per family annually is debited to your OSHC account at the time of enrolment.

Childcare Benefit and Childcare Rebate are available to approved families at a variable rate depending on combined family income. For further information on Childcare Benefit and Childcare Rebate, please contact Department of Human Services on 13 61 50.

At the end of each school year registered families will be asked to re-new their enrolment in order to access care for the following school year. Parents must complete an enrolment form and any relevant medical forms annually, however if family circumstances, contacts, or any other information should change during the year, families must advise the Director immediately.
