Our aim is to provide quality care and recreational activities for children from Pre School to Year 7, in a safe, caring, nurturing and stimulating environment.
We believe in supporting the well-being of each and every child and working together with our families. Everyone who enters our Service is welcomed and valued as an individual. We believe in encouraging children to develop a healthy self-image through social interactions, which involve co-operation, conflict resolution & relationship building.
We value and promote outdoor play in our Service.
We respect each child and his/her family needs and believe in promoting respect for all people by recognising and celebrating the similarities and differences, diverse backgrounds and abilities of everyone in our community.
The Hallett Cove East OSHC/Vacation Care Service operates within all Regulatory and Legislative requirements including the National Quality Framework and the My Time, Our Place Frameworks and ensures that all experiences offered to the children in our care meet these outcomes and guidelines.
We are a Sun Smart and Allergy Aware service.

This service usually offers care on Pupil-Free and School Closure Days. Fees are the same as for Vacation Care. Parents are notified through the school newsletter of these days.
There is an initial registration fee of $25 per family when enrolling in OSHC. A $15 renewal is automatically charged to your account at the start of each year unless you let us know that you no longer require the service.
Our fee levels are set by the Governing Council to meet the Budget for the next year. We are a non-profit organisation and so our fees are set to cover our running costs. The fee level is reviewed each term. Parents are given two weeks written notice on any changes.
