Vacation Care Program
Welcome to After The Bell OSHC Vacation Care Programs. We cater for children 5-12 years of age (mainstream programs) and 5-15years (Special Developmental School Programs). Our program operates from various locations in Victoria. Our programs are filled with fun and exciting activities with amazing excursions and incursions. We ensure all our children have fun each day in a safe, stimulating and friendly environment.
What does my child need to bring?
Please ensure that your child has a snack for morning tea, a nutritional lunch and a refillable bottle.
We ask parents not to pack their children’s bag with soft drinks, lollies and chips. After The Bell follows the Heart Foundation, Healthy Together programs and Nutrition Australia policy and promotes healthy eating at our programs. Children are not permitted to have any food that requires heating or cooking.
Please note that some days we will be providing lunch for the children, please read the program carefully.
Children must bring a hat, sunscreen (if program suncreen is not suitable) and comfortable clothes (be mindful of the weather conditions). If your child does not bring a hat in September to May sunsmart period.
Children must wear the appropriate footwear at all times (no thongs, high heels, crocs, singlet tops in summer).
Incursion and Excursion Days
On designated excursions days, it is very important that you drop your child/ren at the program at least 30 mins before the set departure time scheduled on the program. The bus and Educators will not wait for those who are late. On the days incursions take place at the program, it is advised to arrive at the program 20mins prior to the scheduled incursion time on the flyer. This is to ensure your child does not miss out on the incursion. Remember to look at the program details for times.
