Outside School Hours Care

Livingstone Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) is a service operated through our Early Learning Centre. We provide an education and leisure program for children from Prep to Year 6 (12 years old), catering for before school care (Brekky Club), after school care (Afternoon Club), and vacation care (Holiday Club).  

Brekky Club: 6:30am - 8:00am

On arrival, children are assisted to make their own breakfast from a selection of healthy choices including cereals, toast, fruit and yoghurt provided by the service. Children are provided with opportunity to engage in age-appropriate morning activities based on their interests, promoting a positive and relaxed start to their day. Educators engage with children throughout these activities and hold a devotion and prayer time at 7:45am before transitioning to begin their school day. 

Afternoon Club: 3:00pm – 6:00pm 

Children in Prep and Year 1 are collected from their classrooms by our Educators where they join children in Years 3 to 6 at the Primary School Playground, adjoining the Pre-Prep / OSHC space. Children are supported to put their belongings away and join one another for a healthy afternoon tea (provided by the Centre) where they have the opportunity to share the highlights of their day, and to co-plan activities for the afternoon. A range of engaging activities will be provided and planned for by educators each day in response to collaboration with children and families. 

Holiday Club: 6:30am - 6:00pm

OSCH continues to operate during school holidays and pupil free days, offering care for school aged children from 6:30am to 6:00pm, supporting our valued parents/guardians who are still required to work during these times.  

A range of exciting and age-appropriate leisure activities will be provided through Holiday Club. Holiday Club programs are based on the interests of the children throughout the term, and include a variety of themed days, as well as excursions and visitors.  

OSHC will provide breakfast and afternoon tea options for all children. Parents/guardians provide a packed morning tea and lunch each day (unless otherwise specified on the program). 

Enrolments and Bookings 

OSHC spaces fill up quickly, so we recommend making a weekly or fortnightly regular booking to avoid missing out on your required Brekky Club and Afternoon Club spaces. Holiday Club programs are published 4 weeks before school holidays, and bookings are due 2 weeks before school holidays commence. Casual bookings are also accepted for all sessions subject to availability.  

ELC Enrolment forms must be completed prior to attending OSHC. These are available in-person at the Early Learning Centre Office or online (click here to download). Once enrolment is confirmed, booking requests can be made in-person, via phone, or email.
