Outside School Hours Care

About Hillcrest OSHC

OUR LOCATION
Hillcrest Christian College provides a quality Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) service on our College campus at 21 Bridgman Drive, Reedy Creek. Our College families enjoy the many benefits of our Before School, After School and Vacation Care programs, where our Prep - Year 6 students engage in a range of educational and dynamic activities in a nurturing, child-centred environment.

OUR SERVICE
Our programs are facilitated in the OSHC space, conveniently located near our Prep - Year 2 Castle Precinct. Students can access the College playgrounds and sporting facilities under the supervision of our friendly OSHC staff. Our child-to-educator ratio is one educator to 15 children as per Education and Care Services National Regulations. Our OSHC is licensed by the Office for Early Childhood Education and Care, and eligible families can claim the CCS (Child Care Subsidy) through Centrelink.

All children enrolling in our OSHC program will pay a once-off application fee of $25 per family. The application fee is required to be paid upon enrolment, followed by an Annual Service Fee of $25. On confirmation of your child’s enrolment, you will be emailed a parent handbook. 

Our OSHC service is closed for all public holidays and student-free days, where a student-free day is not attached to Vacation care. Our service operates 50 weeks per year.

Our OSHC service requires 48 hours’ notice before 9am to cancel any temporary casual Before School Care or After School Care bookings. These bookings will be removed from the system. If your child has a permanent term time booking, or a Vacation Care booking and you are unable to attend on a specific day/s these bookings will be marked as absences.
 
If children are collected from the OSHC service after 6pm, $1 per minute will be charged to the parent's account.

Our Vacation Care program operates during all school holidays and pupil-free days. Vacation Care 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 week 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, before the upcoming holidays. It is important that booking 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 FOR 2022: 

  • Permanent/casual: $63 per child, per day (plus extra costs for incursions and excursions)
