Wauchope out of school hour care WOOSH

WOOSH is run by the P and C of Wauchope Public School. We are a not for profit organisation that provides care for children aged 5 to 12 year olds. This has been set up primarily for working parents although we do offer care for children who would like to use the service where vacancies permit. We are licensed to take 30 children per day.

The centre offers care in before and after school, Monday to Friday from 6.30am to 8.30am and 3:00pm to 6:00pm at the cost of $22.00 per day and vacation care, Monday to Friday from 8:00 to 6:00pm at the cost of $40.00 per day. Please remember that this cost is offset by Child Care Subsidy (CCS) payments depending on your income level. Most families find themselves only paying around a quarter to half of the advertised cost. Please go on to https://my.gov.au/ or use your my government /Centrelink app to confirm your booking. We are listed under OSHC. Contact the Department of Human Services for more information. It is essential that payment of fees need to be one week in advance at all times to ensure your childs place within the centre.

Children are provided with a healthy afternoon tea for after school care. Students make their way from their classrooms to the centre each afternoon. The children develop social skills, friendships, and are offered a program with indoor, outdoor and recreational activities.

For those families requiring Vacation Care ,the centre provides activities at Woosh as well as going on outings to places such as the Movies, the Billabong, Library, Wow Fun Park, Local parks but to name a few. Woosh will notify families by way of a program, the itinerary, the cost and what they need to provide for their child on a given day.

Children must be enrolled in school before being accepted and must be under the age of 12 years.

If you would like to gain access to the service, please contact Alex on 0412 852 441.
