Session Hours

The Child Care Subsidy takes into account the number of hours (not just days) that your child attends our program.

To ensure our families are able to optimise their subsidy based on their personal circumstances, we are introducing new session length options at our School Holiday Programs.

If you book with us, you are now able to select from the following session lengths:

  • 9 Hours
  • 10 Hours
  • 11 Hours
  • 12 Hours

Which session length do I choose?

There are a few details that will help us determine the session length you should consider:

  • The number of days you use our service each fortnight (through a permanent booking)
  • The number of hours you utilise the service each day (the time between when you sign your child/ren in and out)

If you know which session length will best suit your family, please complete this adjustment form and return to your OSHC Coordinator so we can update your booking accordingly.

Note: If no booking change is made, the designated session hour length will be 12 hours.

What is the cost of each session?

Each session will be charged at the same daily rate. Claiming the actual hours used, then allows you to make the most of your entitlements and receive more subsidised care during each fortnight.
