About Hillcrest OSHC

Hillcrest provides a quality Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) service at Reedy Creek Baptist Church located at 10 Gemvale Road, Reedy Creek. Our College families enjoy the many benefits of our Before School Care, After School Care and Vacation Care programs, where our Prep - Year 6 students engage in a range of educational and exciting activities in a nurturing, child-centred environment.

Our OSHC is licensed by the Office for Early Childhood Education and Care, and eligible families are able to claim the CCS (Child Care Subsidy) through Centrelink. Hillcrest's OSHC staff are qualified or training in Children’s Services, and all hold First Aid Certificates and Blue Cards.

Before School Care
6.30AM - 8.20AM | Monday - Friday | Term Time

Breakfast is served to students who attend our Before School Care from 6.30am – 7.30am, and includes cereals and toast. Children in Before School Care can participate in a range of activities, or complete any homework they have. A Hillcrest bus collects students from the Church at 8.00am, and Prep - Year 3 students are walked from the College bus stop to their classroom by an OSHC Educator.

DAILY SESSION RATES: 

  • Permanent: $19 per child
  • Casual: $21 per child

Any bookings that are cancelled within 48 hours of the booked session will be charged at the full rate. 

After School Care
3.00PM - 6.00PM | Monday - Friday | Term Time

Prep students in our After School Care program are delivered to the OSHC collection point by their Teacher Aide. Students from other year levels meet our OSHC Educators at the College Multi Purpose Hall (MPH) at 3.00pm, and the bus departs for Reedy Creek Baptist Church once all children have been marked off the roll. We run a second bus service at 4.10pm to collect OHSC students who participate in extracurricular activities at Hillcrest. Children will be signed into the service by the OSHC Coordinator, and provided with afternoon tea. Children are encouraged to complete their homework before they participate in indoor and outdoor activities such as art and craft, board games and group sports.

DAILY SESSION RATES: 

  • Permanent: $23 per child
  • Casual: $25 per child

Please note that there is a $5 non-communication fee for our After School Care program, in the event that OSHC is not informed before 2pm that your child will be absent, when their session had been booked for that day. Late pick ups are charged at $1 per minute.

Vacation Care
6.30AM - 6.00PM | Monday - Friday | School Holidays 

Our Vacation Care program operates during all school holidays, and provides many interactive, fun and engaging activities, including excursions/incursions, arts and crafts, games and special events such as Scooter Day. Our Vacation Care program features an excursion each Wednesday of the holidays, which incurs an extra charge, and various incursions, which also incur a small charge. Parents must complete a Vacation Care booking form, prior to the upcoming holidays. It is important that bookings forms are submitted as early as possible, to assist with planning and staffing the program. We do accept late bookings for Vacation Care, however, we cannot guarantee that a place will be available.

DAILY SESSION RATES: 

  • Permanent: $53 per child, per day 
  • Casual: $58 per child, per day

(+ extra costs for incursions and excursions)

Late pick ups are charged at $1 per minute. Any bookings that are cancelled within 48 hours of the booked session will be charged at the full rate.
