Outside School Hours Care

Our Outside School Hours Care Program (OSHC) is a licenced program which provides a fun, energetic play-based environment for our BCC students. Operating from an OSHC designated room within our Junior Primary precinct, we offer both Morning and Afternoon care sessions, providing peace of mind for parents who need to start work prior to 8:00am or who are unable to finish by 3pm. Our OSHC program follows the “My Time, Our Place” curriculum, which is specifically designed for the OSHC environment.

We also offer Vacation Care to BCC students during the school holidays, and on Pupil Free days. Vacation Care does not operate on Public Holidays, and is closed for a 2 week period over the Christmas/New Year break.

Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate

BCC OSHC is registered and approved for both Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR), should you be eligible. CCB is a percentage allocated to your family to help decrease your out-of-pocket expenses for Child Care, which is means-tested.

CCR is applied to eligible families, who meet the work/study/training test. CCR reduces your out-of-pocket expense by 50%.
