Our services are located within school grounds and provide children with a safe and welcoming environment. The spaces cater to a wide range of activities for children of differing ages, interests and needs.

Our program is based on Australia’s first National Quality Framework, designed specifically for OSHC (for full version www.acecqa.gov.au) which aims to extend and enrich children’s wellbeing and development in school age settings.

Our program encourages and enables children to grow and develop in a safe, caring and supportive environment. As well as our structured activities, there is plenty of time to have fun and play with friends. Children have access to sporting equipment, arts and crafts, drama, science, cooking, toys, games, dress ups and more.

Child Care Subsidy and Transition to Work

The Australian Government provides families with two types of financial assistance to help cover the costs of approved child care. These are Child Care Subsidy (CCS) and Transition to Work. The CCS is income tested. These subsidies must be applied for through Centrelink and will be automatically linked to the service when you provide your unique customer reference number and other enrolment details.

Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

CCS can help cover the cost of care for eligible families.

Transition to Work

Transition to Work will provide support to families who are in the process of re-entering the workforce by engaging in work, study or training activities. Hours of assistance will be determined by the Child Care Subsidy activity test.
