Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)

Updated 23/9/2020

Brunswick East Primary School Out of School Hours Care Service (BEPS OSHC) operates in the OSHC Room and School Hall with access to the Art room, tinker lab, prep unit and the external grounds each school day.

The Service Coordinator is Ranita Swamy (Rena). Phyllis Emonson is the Assistant Coordinator of the program, before school.

The before-school care program operates from 7.30am – 8.45am and includes breakfast (on request). The after-school care program operates at 3.30pm – 6.00pm each afternoon – a nutritious afternoon tea is provided.  Both programs offer a daily plan of activities that are play-based, child-centered, and inclusive experiences, focusing on the developmental, social and recreational needs of all the children.

Student-free days operate on numbers when they occur during the school year.

Vacation Care is a new program set-up to support workers during COVID-19.  This is a small program with a maximum of 16 children in care.  This will be staffed by two Educators.  Please provide all food; morning tea, Lunch, afternoon tea, and snacks.  All current OSHCpolicies and procedures apply.

The National Quality Framework guides and underlies all our practices and procedures.  BEPS OSHC has a commitment to upholding the Safety and Protection of children and maintains the Child Safety Standards throughout its practices and procedures.

Enrollments for the program are now managed through the My Family Lounge portal.

We currently have a staff pool of sixteen Educators, who are all qualified; either in childcare, have a teaching degree, or are in training.  Our team members bring a diverse array of skills, interests, and knowledge to the Programs. Both the Before and After School Care programs are licensed to offer care for 136 places, at a ratio of 1 staff member to 15 children. We are an approved OSHC Service offering the Child Care Subsidy to eligible families who are working or studying.
