Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)

Welcome to The Patch School Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) Program.

The Patch School has a very popular and well supported Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) program.

Bookings can be made on a permanent basis or casually. To attend, all families must have a completed and current enrolment form on file at OSHC which needs to be updated every year.

OSHC Fees for 2017:

Morning sessions cost $16.50 and run from 7.30am - 8.45am, with breakfast provided and do not require bookings to be made. Attendance after 8.20am without breakfast included costs just $8.

Afternoon sessions cost $25 and run from 3.30pm - 6.00pm, provide afternoon tea, a range of engaging activities and do require parents to book a place for their child.

To make a booking for OSHC during program hours, phone 9756 7463 (Option 1) or 0419 515 494 if there is no answer (everyone is probably outside playing!)

If the matter is not urgent, feel free to leave a Voicemail message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

To book during normal school hours, telephone the school Office on 9756 7463.

Note: OSHC fees are increased annually at the beginning of the school year.

Fee Payment Options

We offer several automated payment methods through ChildCare EasyPay. Parents can choose from several different methods to pay their account - a sweep of the full amount, a sweep of a nominated amount (both 'set & forget' options) or log in personally and pay a specific amount directly off your OSHC account whenever you like. Please see Sheila or Edith for more information or see the forms provided below.

NOTE: A processing fee of $1.50 will be charged for any payments (cash, cheque or EFTPOS / credit card) received via the school Office.
