South Coogee OOSH Centre Information
Fees and Rebates:
All of our services at South Coogee OOSH (Before School, After School and Vacation Care) are approved for Child Care Benefit (CCB) by Department of Human Services. To find out if your family is eligible for both the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and the 50% Child Care Rebate for out-for-pocket expenses (CCR) please contact the Department of Human Services on 136 150 or go to the Department of Human Services website for more information on CCB or CCR.
The child care system is changing from July 2018. As part of the changes, Child Care Benefit (CCB), the Child Care Rebate (CCR), Jobs, Education and Training Child Care Fee Assistance (JETCCFA), Grandparent Child Care Benefit (GCCB) and the Special Child Care Benefit (SCCB) will cease on midnight 1 July 2018. From 2 July 2018, there will be a new child care package. The package includes a new Child Care Subsidy, which replaces the current Child Care Benefit & Child Care Rebate.

Breakfast is served between 7:00 am and 8:15 am. Some examples of breakfast are cereal, toast, scrambled eggs, yoghurt, berries and granola made by the children.
A fruit plate along with an afternoon tea snack is provided to the children over the course of the after school care session. Some examples of afternoon tea are tuna pasta, nachos, burritos, spaghetti bolognaise and snack plates. We also offer a fortnightly rotation of multicultural dishes. Dishes are decided on in collaboration with staff, parents and children.
All our healthy meals are designed in accordance with one of our parents who is a trained nutritionist. We update our menu seasonally in conjunction with the children’s tastes, while ensuring the meals are of a healthy standard. If your child has any dietary needs such as food allergies or should abstain from eating certain foods for cultural reason, please let us know. We can offer alternatives from our menu and in some cases, offer substitutes. There is a section in the child’s enrolment form to give details about dietary needs. In rare cases, we may work with parents to create a special food plan.
