The program is designed to provide a variety of activities to meet the children's out of school hours needs. On arrival at each session the children are checked in and provided with a healthy afternoon tea or breakfast.
After their refreshments the children are given the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities. Activities offered include Art & Craft, Cooking, Nike Go, Sports, Indoor games and activities eg. board gamers, construction, etc., computer games and Nintendo.
Those children who prefer, or need, a quiet time at the end of the school day are catered for as well. Older children with homework will be given time to complete it during the session if they wish.
Child Care Benefit
The program operates on a non-profit basis, with all income utilized in the day-to-day running of the program. The Commonwealth Government provides Childcare Assistance for families to help with the costs of out of school hours care. All Australian resident families using approved child care services are eligible for Child Care Benefit as reduced child care fees or as a lump sum payment at the end of the financial year. To reduce your fees, parents need to lodge a Child Care Benefit Assistance claim form with the Family Assistance Office located in all Centrelink and Medicare offices. If you would prefer a lump sum payment a Request for Customer Reference form must be completed. All forms are available at the OHSC centre. Please see the coordinator for further information or to obtain a 'Childcare Assistance Application Form'.
