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 Junior Primary wing adjacent to the basketball courts, our facility has a fully equipped kitchen, large craft and free play areas, older children’s chill out area, wet room and sensory space. We also utilise courts, an oval, a gym 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 6-7 of each term and are sent via email. Families registered with Centrelink for Childcare may be eligible for financial assistance with Child Care Subsidy.

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.
