Out of school hours care

Epping Heights Public School's out of school hours care (OSHC) aims to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your children. We are committed to providing a quality, fun program that allows the children to choose how their time will be spent at OSHC.

The program includes a variety of arts and crafts, activities, games and sport on a daily basis.  A quiet time in the afternoon is provided for children after 5pm who wish to complete their homework.

Opening hours

During the school term the centre is open from 7am to 8:35am and from 3:05pm to 6pm. For the first term, Kindergarten children are escorted to the centre by staff in the afternoon. The centre also provides vacation care and is open on school development days, from 7am to 6pm. Please refer to published programs for details of the full day activities.

Attendance fees per child

Some families are entitled to the government's child care benefit (CCB) payment, which provides a discount to the centre's fees. All families are entitled to childcare rebate (CCR). This is half of all fees paid, reimbursed quarterly by the government.

A variety of breakfast foods are served each morning. A nourishing afternoon tea is provided each day. The centre has staff consisting of the coordinator, assistant coordinator and several assistants. The centre adheres to the child care standard ratio of one staff member to every 15 children. An administrative services provider is employed to handle all administrative matters of the centre.

A voluntary group of parents comprise the management committee who decides matters of policy, fees, staffing and all matters relating to running the centre. A copy of the centre's policies and procedures is available at the centre for interested people to read upon request.

The parent handbook details the rules under which the centre operates. Parents are required to read this handbook prior to enrolling their child. To enrol and for further information, please visit our OHSC website or contact the centre coordinators.
