We believe it is important to provide children with care and support to ensure their sense of security and belonging in our community through a fun, interactive and safe environment at school.

St Monica’s Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) program respects the importance of each child’s family and understands that families have different cultural and philosophical approaches to childcare.

The OSHC program provides a safe, multi-aged, structured environment that helps children to develop physically, socially and emotionally in a supportive atmosphere. All children have choices in regard to activities that best suit their age, interests and needs. The OSHC program will respond to the needs of the children by facilitating them in a happy and fulfilling environment with developmentally appropriate and stimulating experiences.

Bookings and Child Care Subsidies

The OSHC program includes:

  • Before School Care (7:30am to 8.20am)
  • After School Care (3.00pm to 6.00pm)
  • Vacation Care

Enrolment forms can be obtained from the Front Office and OSHC. Children may be booked in to the OSHC programme on a permanent or casual basis.

Child Care Subsidy

Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) will be replaced with a means tested Child Care Subsidy. 

Families who are eligible or are already registered with Centrelink can claim the Child Care Subsidy, which makes OSHC an extremely affordable form of care.

For further information please visit the Child Care Subsidy website or contact the Family Assistance Office on 136 150.
