It has been a great first week and a half back at school for 2020 at OSHC. The children have started working on their Child Profiles, so we can learn about their interests, and can plan activities that relate to these. Other popular activities have included active group games, tennis, checkers, schools dramatic play, a delicious picnic snack outside on the playground, and so much more.
This week at OSHC we are celebrating the things we love…our family and friends, and the things that mean the most to us.
With the commencement of the school year we need to remind everyone that sun smart hats should be brought to OSHC so that the children can go outside and enjoy the amazing weather we get this time of year at after school care. If your child is not allowed by their classroom teacher to bring their hats home after school it is a good idea to have a spare hat in their bag (an old kinder or daycare hat is perfect)
OSHC at Drysdale Primary School operates out of the School hall, We open at 7:00 each school day, and send the children off to school at 8:50, when the teachers are scheduled to commence their yard duty. Prep children are escorted to their classrooms for the first 6 weeks of the school year, by which time they are normally very keen to male their own way to school, however if they are still uncertain we can continue his on an as needs basis. Unfortunately we are unable to accept children into our care earlier than 7:00. Families can access the service through the hall glass door that faces out onto Stonehouse place (tennis courts carpark).
At 3:30, once the school bell goes, children attending after school care walk over to the hall from their classrooms, with preps being picked up from their classrooms and we provide a safe place for them to play and engage with other children until they are collected. Our closing time is 6:00. For more information on our service and fees, you may visit our website www.campaustralia.com.au. If you prefer to speak to us, you can contact our friendly Customer Care Team that is available to support our families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – except for National Public Holidays. Alternatively, you’re welcome to visit us in service and chat with our qualified Educators about the Camp Australia program at your child’s school.
Parents please be reminded that in order to use the service they need to be registered with Camp Australia. We are unable to accept children into the service who are not registered with Camp Australia.
A friendly reminder for parents that for staffing and catering purposes children should be booked into OSHC through the Camp Australia head office, and that should you need to cancel their booking please can this be done through head office as well. This works out much cheaper for you, as there are additional fees involved if children do not attend sessions they are booked in for. Bookings can be made or cancelled by logging into the Camp Australia website https://www.campaustralia.com.au or by ringing 1300 105 343. The team are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (except National Public Holidays).
We look forward to seeing you and your family soon! From the Team at Camp Australia.
