Our Services are designed to provide your child with quality care at all times, whilst providing Parents with reliable care and the security of knowing that their children are in a safe, nurturing environment, where they are well cared for and having fun enjoying a range of stimulating and creative activities.

We provide child care to school aged children (5 - 12 years). OSHC offers before and after school care during the school term while vacation care offers all day care over the school holidays and pupil free days.

Our Staff all have current ‘Working with Children Checks’, first aid qualifications and experience working with children. The majority of our Staff hold qualifications of Diploma Children’s Services and Certificate III Children’s Services.

Our aim is:
• To provide a friendly, caring, safe environment that will foster each child's growth and development.

• To provide high quality care for children.

• To provide a positive anti-bias environment which will foster the child's self-esteem.

• To develop and implement a balanced program that reflects the principals of “My Time, Our Place” and is stimulating, interesting and exciting.

• To allow opportunities for the children to explore and develop new skills which will include such areas as arts and crafts, outdoor sports and games, reading, cooking and indoor games.

• For children to enjoy themselves.

• To help children to appreciate and care for each other and their surrounding environment.

Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate:

Child Care Benefit (CCB) is given to families based on the Parent’s/Guardian’s income, assets and the number of children in care.

To obtain the Child Care Benefit, the Parent/Guardian should notify the Family Assistance Office (phone 13 61 50) of their children’s attendance at OSHC.

Families may also be eligible to receive the Child Care Rebate (CCR) to help reduce their child care costs. Parents can choose to have this rebate paid directly to the Service.

For more information regarding CCB and CCR families can visit:


Enrolments can be made at the Service or at Kempsey Family Day Care’s Co-ordination Unit, located at 11 Austral Street Kempsey.

Every child must be enrolled and the enrolment form signed before being accepted at the Service. A $20.00 per family annual registration fee is to be paid. This fee helps towards the cost of providing insurance coverage for your child whilst attending OSHC.

The registration fee is due at the beginning of each year or upon enrolment and is a compulsory requirement of your child’s attendance at OSHC. Enrolments need to be reviewed 1st January each year.
