Enrolment at OSHC
All children need to be enrolled with OSHC before they are able to attend the OSHC program. Enrolment forms will need to be completed and returned so that children can be entered onto the Child Care Management System which reports all child attendances to the Family Assistance Office.
Upon enrolment a $20 payment will be paid by parents enrolling their children into OSHC which will put their account in credit and cover the costs of OSHC fees while a direct debit form is set up to allow OSHC fees to be debited directly from parent’s bank accounts on a weekly basis. Fees will only be debited when parents owe OSHC fees. All family accounts will need to remain in credit to continue to use the OSHC program.
Burton Primary School OSHC does not provide care for kindergarten children. Children starting Reception in term 1 of each year can access OSHC from the January holidays.

Extra-Curricular Consent Form
Burton Primary School OSHC service recognises that extra-curricular activities can provide a valuable option for children to participate in activities that support their growth, development and interests. The service will work with families to support the access of such activities. Examples of such activities have included sport practices, sport clinics, working with a tutor and music lessons.
If your child will be participating in an extra-curricular activity whilst attending Out of School Hours Care please complete the Extra-Curricular Activities Consent Form and return it to Burton Primary School OSHC, as the legislative framework requires that written consent must be supplied to the OSHC prior to commencement.
The Burton Primary School Council is responsible for the organisation and management of the Out of School Hours Care program, and this is done through the Out of School Hours Care Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee is composed of parent, School Council and School Staff representatives and the OSHC Director.
The Advisory Committee meets twice a term and reports to the School Council. Families are welcome to join or assist the Advisory Committee.
