Every school holiday period, the experienced staff at Pymble Ladies’ College Out of School Hours Care centre design and host a School Holiday Program of safe, fun and entertaining activities for school children aged 5 to 12 years old. Our Kids on Campus School Holiday Program has been operating for many years and is rated as Exceeding National Quality Standard by Early Childhood Education and Care Directorate NSW.
From Thursday December 6 2018, Kids on Campus will cater primarily for children attending Pymble Ladies’ College. This change is a direct result of increased enrolments of primary school-aged children at the College, which has led to greater demand for school holiday care from Pymble families.
Kids on Campus School Holiday Program bookings will be open to:
- current Pymble Ladies’ College students
- future Pymble Ladies’ College students enrolled to commence in the Preparatory, Junior or Senior Schools, including Kindergarten girls commencing 2019
- male siblings (in Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 2018) of current Pymble Ladies’ College students.
2018/19 Summer Holiday Program
Our next Kids on Campus Holiday program will run between the following dates.
- Thursday 6 to Friday 21 December 2018
- Thursday 10 to Friday 25 January 2019
If your child would like to swim, they are welcome to join us in the Learn to Swim pool. Please send along their swimmers, a towel, goggles (optional), and a swimming cap. We will have spare swimming caps if you do not have your own. A swimming permission slip is included on the booking form.
It is a legal requirement that parents/guardians sign their child in and out of the Centre each day. Children can only leave the Centre when accompanied by a parent/guardian, or an adult nominated in the HubWorks enrolment form. Written notification or an email confirmation is required to allow another person to collect your child, if they are not already entered in the HubWorks system. This can be done in writing and must be signed by the parent/guardian. Alternatively an email can be sent to email@example.com, or in emergency situations an SMS can be sent to 0439 044 279. A phone call or message cannot be accepted as an official notification due to National Regulations. Photo ID must be provided by the person collecting your child
Children must be collected by 6.00pm. Families will be charged a late fee of $5.00 per minute, per child, after this time.
If a payment is declined, Pymble OSHC will provide families with a seven-day grace period to make the outstanding payment. If this has not been rectified within seven days, the provision of OSHC service will be suspended for the family until payment is made in full. A late payment/decline fee of $25.00 will be charged through iPay for each two-week cycle that the account remains in arrears.
There are no refunds or credits for bookings unless a medical certificate is provided. Requests for a refund or credit must be via email to the OSHC Co-ordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org, with a copy of a medical certificate. Requests must be received no later than two weeks from the final day of Kids on Campus. An excursion may be cancelled if insufficient registrations are received. You will be notified, and a full refund issued.
If your child is known to have an anaphylactic reaction or episode to any allergen then it is imperative that, upon enrolment, parents provide a current (printed copy) action plan that includes a photo of your child. Parents must supply an EpiPen labelled in a small container, if this is part of your action plan. If your child is known to have asthma, then it is imperative that, upon enrolment, parents provide a current asthma plan, which includes a recent photo of your child. Medication must be sent with your child in a clearly labelled container.
Medication will only be administered by staff if it is in the original packaging with your child’s name on it. You will need to supply a note with instructions for administering the medication and sign our medication administration form at morning drop off.
If your child is unwell, please keep them at home. If your child is unwell on arrival at the Centre, then you will be asked to take them home. If your child becomes unwell during the course of the day, you will be contacted to arrange an alternative care plan.
Pymble’s Kids on Campus School Holiday Program is ‘Approved Child Care’. This allows families to claim the Child Care Subsidy. The Child Care Subsidy helps families cover the cost of out-of-pocket expenses for child care, and is not income tested. The Child Care Subsidy is income tested and is usually paid directly to approved Child Care Services to reduce the fees that eligible families pay. For further information on the Child Care Subsidy, please contact the Department of Human Services on 13 24 68 or visit the MyChild website.
