The Norton Summit Primary School Out of School Hours Care Program aims to provide quality care for school children from 5 to 13 years.

We believe:

  • That the program should meet the needs of our children, parents, staff and community.
  • In providing a variety of learning and recreational experiences to complement and extend the children’s physical, intellectual, social and emotional development.
  • In respecting each person as an individual.

We aim to:

  • Provide a happy, safe, clean, comfortable and secure environment.
  • Be warm, caring and sensitive to the individual beliefs, backgrounds, personalities and abilities of each child.

Management Committee

The Management Committee consists of the principal, a parent representative, a Governing Council representative, finance officer and OSHC staff representative.

An administration fee will apply if accounts are more than 1 month in arrears.

After School Care will supply drinks and afternoon tea, it is recognised that these will be of as high a nutritional value as possible. If there is a specific dietary requirement (eg allergies) please notify the staff.
A drop in numbers could jeopardise the viability of an OSHC site. Refer to broader policies for more details.
Prescribed and non-prescribed medicines (eg Panadol) will be administered only if requested in writing by the Parent / Caregiver. The medication to be administered must be in the original container bearing the child’s name, instructions and description of the medication. Please supply your own medicine measuring instrument.
Children are supervised at all times. Children will be supervised with the highest degree of care possible, while recognising that it is impossible to supervise every child for every moment.

Bookings and Cancellations
Please contact the school of all bookings and cancellations, by 11:00am on the day and where possible 24 hours notice would be appreciated. The Director is constantly aware of staff/ child ratios and to continually offer quality care we need to have knowledge of all bookings and cancellations that happen daily. Failure to notify will incur the Cancellation Fee, except in the case of unexpected illness.

Authority for the Collection of Children
No child will be allowed to leave the program without prior permission from the parents. Any adult who collects your child must notify the staff member and sign the attendance sheet. Please notify staff if someone other than the usual person is to collect your child. If circumstances change, staff must be notified verbally or by phone prior to the child’s collection.
We regret that children suffering from contagious infections cannot be cared for. If a child arrives unwell, or becomes unwell during the course of the program, the child will be comforted and cared for until the parents or emergency contact can be notified to collect the child as soon as possible.
