Enrolment and bookings

All families using the Service must complete an online enrolment, listing emergency contacts, CRNs and medical information. A once-off enrolment fee of $20 for new families is due at the time of enrolment. Enrolments, bookings and cancellations may be completed online via our parent portal:
https://stpiusxoshc.fullybookedccms.com.au/family/logon.


Once you have completed the information on the portal, please contact the service to organise a ten minute enrolment interview so that we can better understand your children’s and families individual needs.   There is no fee for canceling a session in After School Care as long as you notify the Service before the session starts. Failure to notify us of a cancelled session will attract a short stay absence. Before school care attracts a short stay absence fee if we are not notified of a cancellation by 6pm the previous evening. Emergency bookings may be made on the day by phoning through to the OSHC office or school’s front office. Children can be advised of the booking.

Session Times and Fees 2020

Fees are individually tailored to each family, depending on your combined income. This scheme is administered through Centrelink but once registered, your fees are reduced at the OSHC service.

As of July 2nd 2018 Families are able to apply for Child Care Subsidy (CCS) through Centrelink to reduce their fees. The Child Care Subsidy will be paid directly to service providers to be passed on to families as a fee reduction. Families will make a co-contribution to their fees and pay to the provider the difference between the fee charged and the subsidy amount. The full cost for care before CCS reductions is outlined below:

LATE OR NON-PAYMENT OF FEES

Accounts are distributed fortnightly and fees are expected to be paid on a fortnightly basis. New Families must enter their credit card or bank account details directly into the payment section of the family portal and the exact fees will be deducted fortnightly on a Thursday through Ezi debit (after receiving a statement showing exactly how much will be deducted). There is no charge if you enter bank account details, but there is a 1.87% levy for Visa/Mastercard and 4.4% AMEX/Diners. The director must be notified if difficulties arise with payment. Any    account which becomes outstanding after a month will attract a $10 fee (unless an agreement has been made with the director). The Management Committee reserves the right to terminate  enrolment and engage the Debt Collection Agency if fees are not paid within a negotiated time and also insist that families use the Ezi debit      system for any future bookings.

PICK UP OF CHILDREN

Only people specified on the enrolment are allowed to collect children from the Service. Please ensure that you nominate every possibility on the contacts section on the family portal. The director must be  informed of any custody order. All children must be signed in or out by the parent/guardian or authorised person.

LATE PICK UP

All children must be picked up by closing time. A late fee of $1.00 for every minute late will be charged. Lateness in excess of 30 minutes will attract a flat $50 fee. In cases of unforeseen emergencies the Service must be          notified. If a child has not been collected by 6.30pm and there is no message from the parent, every effort will be made to contact a parent/guardian or an emergency contact person. If this proves unsuccessful Crisis Care or the police will be contacted, who will work to locate a parent/guardian.
