Out of School Hours Care
CONGRATULATIONS WARRANDYTE OUTSIDE SCHOOL HOURS CARE.
In the recent National Quality Assessment Report the service was rated as EXCEEDING National Standard overall!!
Our Out of School Hours (OSHC) program operates out of the Multipurpose complex between 7.15-8.45am (BEFORE CARE) and 3.30pm-6.30pm (AFTER CARE) daily. Booking procedures are explained in our ‘Parent Handbook’ available upon enrolment.
On curriculum days, if numbers warrant, we run a program from 7.30 am-6.30pm.
The OSHC program offers both indoor and outdoor experiences. It gives the choice of structured activities and creates opportunities for children to initiate their own play and have choice to materials, encouraging decision making and independence. The program encourages children to initiate and participate in recreational experiences, supporting their physical, creative, aesthetic development. The programming process caters for all needs, interests and abilities of all children.
All our OSHC team members are caring, committed and qualified individuals. We are a registered and accredited program, giving us CCB funding from the Commonwealth Government for 30 funded places at Aftercare. This enables all families to access Child Care Benefits, which can be obtained from the Family Assistance Office (FAO) to assist with fees. The fee reduction is in accordance with the family’s annual income and is managed through the Childcare Management System (CCMS).Families need to contact the FAO in order to obtain a Customer Reference Number (CRN) on 136150.
A healthy nutritious breakfast and afternoon tea are provided
The program is children centred and play-based. Options are provided and children are encouraged to make choices and have input into every area of the program. All children enjoy the sporting programs offered through Active After School Care.
