It is with regret we cannot offer any fortnightly permanent care effective from January 2017 due to our centre being at capacity. Alternatively, casual positions maybe booked up to a term in advance to secure positions.
Week 1 – Mon, Tues, Wed
Week 2 – Tues, Wed, Thurs
With this example of care requirements you could book Tuesday and Wednesday sessions as permanent care but Monday and Thursday will be casual bookings. Should you wish to leave the Monday and Thursday as weekly permanent then you are responsible to advise of the child’s non attendance on the alternate weeks to avoid a non notification fee applying.
If this will effect your booking patterns for 2017 then please send your Term 1 booking requirements through immediately to avoid disappointment. We will do our best to cater for your needs.

If you have a permanent or confirmed casual/emergency position and you are aware your child will be absent then it is essential to advise the centre of the child’s absence before the completion of the AM Session, prior to the PM Session commencing or prior to 9:00am during Vacation Care. This is not to only ensure we have marked them correctly but it is for the safety and well being of the child.
All students are due to commence KT OOSH effective from Wednesday 1st February 2017 and as per their care schedule. If you wish for your child to not commence KT OOSH straight away then you MUST advise absences to avoid a non notification fee being charged. This includes early pick ups from class/school.
The RHAC OOSH Mobile for texting absences is 0434 584 881. Acknowledgement of your advise will be sent back to you.
If a child is absent from a PM session then you will be sent a text stating they have not arrived and a $7.50 non notification/child will be charged to your account. It is your responsibility to acknowledge the text and reply so we know your child is safe. Non advise of absences for Am Sessions and Vacation Care sessions automatically results in a $7.50 non notification fee being charged to your account and no text will be forwarded.
When dropping your child at the centre of a morning, please ensure an educator acknowledges that your child has arrived otherwise please ensure you let them know by way of a wave or gesture.
