September 2021 Vacation Care

Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

You may notice some changes as we identify ways for the service to implement more sustainable measures.  One of these is to eliminate hard copy paper waste by moving some forms to an electronic format.  This will be our first attempt at using an electronic form and we ask for your patience and support.  We will not provide hard copies of the vacation care calendar and program this time but instead ask you to utilise the electronic form which you will complete online and submit directly to the service.

Your child may bring an individual handheld device (such as Nintendo DS, IPAD, etc…) to play games on during the afternoon movie time.  Internet service will not be provided and children will not be allowed to share devices.  The OSHC does not assume liability for damage or loss to the devices – they are brought at your own risk.  There is a storage room available for the devices to be locked during the day.

Days on the calendar with this picture indicate that your child needs to wear his/her EHSS uniform shirt for an excursion.

NO SPARE SHIRTS WILL BE AVAILABLE. If your child arrives without their school polo. You will be required to return home to collect it. 

 

 

Days marked with a wet sponge indicate that it is a wet water day requiring swimmers, dry change of clothes, hat, rashie to cover shoulders and a towel.  Children who do not have a hat or rashie will only be allowed to participate for the last 10 minutes of their session.

Eatons Hill OSH Club requires families to enroll for automatic debit through the Debit Success payment program upon enrolment. Families can elect to use their credit card or have their bank account debited for payment with deductions occurring on Wednesday, every fortnight.

Any payment changes can be made through the My Family Lounge App on your mobile phone before Monday of the billing week.

Sessions can be cancelled with 7-days written notice.

Please ensure that your child arrives at the service by the designated time wearing their school polo shirt (for easy identification) and a hat for all excursions as well as a water bottle. If you are unable to make it by this time, you should notify the service by calling 0488 698 611 to make alternate arrangements. If the service has not received a phone call from you and your child has not arrived by the designated time, you will be required to transport your child to the designated venue for drop off.

**On Excursion days, your child must wear their school polo – no spare shirts will be available. If your child arrives without their school polo, you will be required to return home to collect it. There will be no exceptions.**
