Out of School Hours Care

Below we have some exciting news in regards to the extra student free week at the end of the term:

Upcoming Pupil Free Days

On Monday the 25th June to Friday 29th June, Camp Australia will be providing Pupil Free Days at our OSHC service.

Location: 39 Broughton Drive, Belmont, VIC, 3216

Time: 7.00am to 6.00pm

Cost: $53.88 per day, per child (there will be no CCB for these Pupil Free days)

Bookings should be made by Monday the 18th June 2018.

Should you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our Customer Care Team at 1300 105 343. The team are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


- If your child is booked in for a session and won’t be attending, please cancel this session online through your Parent Portal or by contacting Customer Care. This ensures we aren’t chasing up the whereabouts of your child with you when they have safely been collected from school, and also avoids the extra $20 charge for no show fee.

-If you are booking in a child for the first time in general or this year and they have any allergies, anaphylaxis, asthma or additional needs please be mindful we will require in date action plans (Camp Australia have their own for Asthma) completed by a doctor and there may be additional medical forms Camp Australia require. These will all need to be provided to us prior to your child attending along with any required medication. Please come speak to us prior to your child attending.

The new Child Care Subsidy, and what it means for you
On the 2nd of July, the Australian Government will transition to a new Child Care Subsidy (CCS). This will replace the existing Child Care Rebate (CCR) and Child Care Benefit (CCB).
There are a number of key changes that families who rely on childcare before and/or after school need to know, including:
• Any benefit will be paid directly to child care providers (like Camp Australia), who will then only bill the ‘gap’ amount to families.
• There will continue to be hardship relief.
• For families earning less than $186,958, there will no longer be an annual cap on the amount of subsidy you can receive. For families earning between $186,958 and $351,248, an increased annual subsidy cap of $10,000 per child will apply each year.
If you’d like to know what percentage of your child care costs you can claim back through the Child Care Subsidy, check out the simple Family Childcare Subsidy Estimator at https://www.education.gov.au/sites/education/files/chcare/est/index.html
