Out of School Hours Care

WELCOME TO EATONS HILL OSH CLUB
 
At Eatons Hill OSH Club, we are committed to providing children with quality learning opportunities, delivered in a safe, secure and stimulating environment, while aspiring to deliver the highest standard of care.  Our Educators have a wide variety of experience in school age care and are guided in best practice by the Education and Care Services National Law Act 2010, National Regulations 2011, the School Aged Framework, My Time, Our Place and other relevant government regulatory bodies. 
My Time, Our Place aims to provide school aged children in outside school hours care with high quality care that promotes their learning and development while recognising the importance of social interactions and recreation.
Educators working in collaboration with children and their families, guide children’s learning by identifying their strengths and interests.  Our aim is to extend and enrich children’s wellbeing by providing stimulating, positive leisure experiences that foster self-esteem and confidence.  We strive to achieve this by recognising that children need time to interact with friends, practice social skills, solve problems, and provide new experiences while teaching life skills. This enhances children’s physical, emotional and social development while recognising the importance of creating a safe, caring and supportive environment. 
Eatons Hill OSH Club is managed by the Eatons Hill State School Parents and Citizens Association. The President of the P&C is the Approved Provider and ultimately accountable for all functions of the service. Eatons Hill State School Parents and Citizens Association holds monthly meetings in the Community Hall and executives are elected yearly at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in March.  Policies and management issues in regards to OSHC should be directed to the P&C Association rather than through the Principal or school.
Care is available to primary school aged children from Prep to Grade 6 from the beginning of the calendar year in which children will attend school, meaning newly enrolled preps can begin attending vacation care at OSHC as of 1st January, of the year they enrol for prep.
Parents/Guardians are required to complete a new enrolment form each year before their child can attend.  An ezidebit payment form is also required the first year of enrolment and thereafter when details change.  In October, existing families are given a 4-week priority period to register their care needs for the following year.  Once this priority period expires, enrolment is opened to all families.  Information acquired through the enrolment process will be handled with confidentiality and sensitivity and only accessed for purposes for which it was attained.
Parents/Guardians are responsible for informing the OSH Club of any changes to their personal information such as telephone numbers, addresses, authorised persons to collect children, and any medical or dietary considerations.
