Please contact us by email or phone on 9516 3756 or mobile 0410 455 756 to make sure we are able to accommodate your child. On acceptance of the booking please inform the School or Pre-School that your child will be attending so they know we will collect them. Casual bookings must be paid for on or before the day. If your child does not attend, you will still have to pay for the booking because we may have had to hire an extra staff member to comply with ratios. We are a not for profit service so we seek you prompt attention and understanding with our booking policy.
A community Partnership
Australia Street OSHC (unlike other OSHC services) is a school based service of Australia Street Infants School. It is managed and run by ASSCO (Australia Street Infants School Community Organisation) in partnership with the school. Through this partnership we are able to provide a commitment to deliver a high quality service for all students, whilst also ensuring that all staff are trained and adhere to NSW Department of Education and Training policies including those relating to child protection and codes of conduct.
