Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)
CBC OSHC is a service that the Junior School offers to all CBC families. We provide Before School Care, After School Care, Vacation Care and Pupil Free Day care.
Our service assists families in caring for their children in a safe and enjoyable environment. We have a large and flexible service, so there are always spaces for new enrolments. All the enrolment information (including forms) may be found on this website, or alternatively you may ring us on 8400 4265 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
To enrol in the service you must complete an Enrolment Form, which will need to be submitted to the service. There is a once off fee of $25.00 for new students. Before children start OSHC we ask that, you bring them in to have a look around the service, meet the staff and become familiar with the routines and environment. If your child has any medical or other needs, we require a medical plan and request that you discuss it with us so that we may become more familiar with your child’s individual needs.
When young children first start Before School Care, the OSHC Staff escort new children to their classroom in the morning for the first few times, or until the child feels confident enough to go with their friends (this usually doesn’t take very long). Similarly, when children start After School Care, the teacher will escort them down to the designated area and an OSHC staff member will collect them. Please speak with your child’s teacher about this when your child/ren first start OSHC.
Children don’t need to attend Christian Brothers College to attend our Vacation Care program. We have many children from a range of other schools who attend our service.
When enrolling for Vacation Care it is expected that a Vacation Care Booking form will accompany the enrolment form, indicating which days are required. Every additional Vacation Care period after this will require another booking form, specific to the holiday period. Forms are available from this website or by requesting via email email@example.com.
