After School Care or Vacation Care Program in 2015

Dear Families,

Welcome back to a new and exciting school year!

We would like to remind families that if you would like to use the After School Care or Vacation Care Program in 2015, you will need to complete a 2015 Enrolment Form if you have not already done so. There is no charge for enrolling and is a handy way of ensuring that your children are able to use the program if you need care at short notice.

Please note:

  • That there is a 2 day processing time once the enrolment is received, so if you do intend to use the service soon, you need to ensure that you put in the enrolment form.  You cannot submit it on the day.
  • Families with balances outstanding from 2014 will be unable to book into the service until the account is settled or payment arrangement agreed to with the OSHC administration team.
  • Bookings for the session can be made up until 2:15pm on the day of care.  No bookings with be taken beyond that point.  Children that turn up to the program without a booking will be sent to the school reception or back to their classroom teacher.
  • Acceptance of bookings made on the day is dependent on staffing and attendance levels.  If you book on the day you do run the risk of not obtaining a place.  All bookings need to be confirmed.
  • You can book by calling OSHC administration on 9205 5454, calling the service direct on 0438 205 224 or emailing collingwoodcollegeoshc@yarracity.vic.gov.au
  • If your child is not attending the service on a day for which they are booked in, please inform the program or staff will have to conduct follow up phone calls to locate your child, and these will continue through the afternoon until your child is confirmed as safe.  Last year up to 10 children a day were not turning up for care taking staff up to an hour to locate all the children.  This reduces the staffing in the space and impacts the program significantly.
  • Please remind your children that if they are booked into OSHC they need to go to the OSHC room straight away rather than playing in the playground or lingering in classrooms.

Thanks kindly in advance for your cooperation.
