Outside School Hours Care
Big Hill Primary School offers a Before and After School Hours Care program to support families of the Big Hill Communities’ Primary School aged children.
The Outside School Hours Care staff offer a varied and exciting program that appeals to children of all year levels.
Each day a program with a variety of activities is programmed for the children to keep them stimulated and having fun during their time at OSHC.
Before School Care provides children with a healthy breakfast and After School Care provides a nourishing afternoon snack which is varied every day.
Picking up Children
All children who attend OSHC must be collected by 6:00pm sharp.
This will be strictly observed as our worker’s hours finish at 6:00pm.
Additional fees will be incurred if your child is not picked up by 6:00pm
If your child is to be picked up by somebody other than the parent or guardian or emergency contact as listed on the enrolment form, we require written permission from the parent.
Both casual and permanent bookings are available to suit the needs of families.
An enrolment form must be completed before attendance at the program and lodged at least a day prior to commencement at the school office.
Please take your time with this and include all relevant information so we can ensure the best care is taken of your children.
Cancellations must be made no later than 9:30am on the day for After School Care or by 4:30pm the day prior to Before School Care or the full fee will be charged.
If your child attends on a casual basis, you are requested to contact the office to book in.
We realise there will be times when this is not possible and bookings may be taken later on those occasions, subject to availability.
Hours of Operation and Fees as at February, 2020
Please contact the school office for information regarding the fee structure.
Our Program does not operate on Curriculum/Student Free days, or public/school holidays.
The Child Care Subsidy (CCS) will reduce these costs for most families.
Please ensure you enter your CRN (Centrelink Reference Number) on the OSHC enrolment form.
You will also need to have a MyGov or Centrelink online account and you will be asked to confirm your booking requirements through this to enable the CCS to be paid to the school on your behalf.
* Please note, fees are subject to change, possibly at the start of the 2021 school year.
Payment of Fees
Weekly accounts will be issued to those attending.
Accounts should be paid fortnightly.
Payments will be reflected on the statement, receipts will start to be issued again in 2021.
