Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)

Managed in partnership by a Parent and Staff Sub-Committee of the Happy Valley Primary School Governing Council, Happy Valley Primary School OSHC offers an engaging, high quality program. Fully compliant with National Standards for Out of School Hours Care providers, we employ qualified staff who provide a safe, caring and enjoyable environment.

Based in the ‘Long Room’, this facility has a fully equipped kitchen, a quiet area for homework, large craft and free play area, older children’s chill out area and is adjacent to a large undercover play area, ball courts, oval and two areas with playground equipment. The program and activities are driven by the children’s interest and founded on the Framework for School Aged Care.

Before School Care is open from 7:00-9:00am and After School Care is open from 3:00-6:15pm. In Vacation Care and on Pupil Free Days we are open from 7:00-6:15pm. Please note we do not open on School Closure Days and are closed for the two weeks over the Christmas and New Year period.

Our Vacation Care program provides a wide range of programmed recreational activities for both junior and senior age groups, with excursions provided as part of the fee. Vacation Care is open each week day of the school holidays (except on Public Holidays and for a two week period over Christmas). Programs for each Vacation Care period are available in Week 6 of each term from the OSHC Centre or school office. Families registered with Centrelink for Childcare may be eligible for financial assistance with Child Care Benefit and all families are eligible for the 50% Child Care Rebate.

Happy Valley Primary School OSHC works in partnership with Chandlers Hill Kindergarten and offers a drop off and pick up service each morning and afternoon.
