Welcome to Outside School Hours Care (OSHC)

OSHC programs operate before school care (7:15-8:30), after school care, including after Kinder care (school/class finishing time-6:15) and student free days (7:15-6:15) during term time. For care during school holidays, please refer to the Vacation Care page.

How to book your child in to Outside School Hours Care

 All extra bookings requests are to be directed to the Service Coordinator


 Absences from care

If your child is going to be away from care, we require that you ring the service directly and notify the staff. An Allowable Absence fee (75% of full session cost) will be added to your account rather than the full fee. If your child does not attend care and educators need to follow up with phone calls, a Search Fee will be added to your account.


Cancellation of care/changing permanent bookings

If you wish to change your permanent bookings or to cancel care, we require two weeks notice for these changes to occur.


Allergy aware centre

All services within Blackmans Bay Childrens Services are allergy aware. We ask that you do not pack nut products within your child’s lunchbox (this includes peanut butter and nutella). Your help with this is appreciated. 


What to bring

At After School Care, afternoon tea is provided. This consists of a variety of different snacks accompanied by fruit and/or vegetables. If you think your child/ren may need more to eat, please pack a snack in their bag. A sun safe hat (legionnaire or broad rimmed hat) is required to be worn any time the UV is 3 or above (usually, but not limited to, September to April). Sometimes children may engage in messy play or get dirty; please feel free to pack some spare clothes in your child’s bag.


Who to contact

If you wish to speak to someone about the care of your child, the routine at the service, afternoon tea, activities or your child’s bookings (once you have enroled), please speak to an OSHC educator at your service.

Please contact the relevant OSHC Coordinator between the hours of 7.15am – 9.00am or 2.30pm – 6.15pm as listed below.
