What happens at OSHC?
We offer engaging activities for all ages, including arts and craft, games, cooking, sports, drama, board games, dress-ups and fun with friends.
On request from parents, children can also participate in homework club. The service provides delicious and healthy food for breakfast at Before School Care and afternoon tea at After School Care.

Child Care Benefit
Many families are entitled to receive Child Care Benefit (CCB) to help cover the cost of approved child care. CCB is income tested and is paid directly to Helping Hands to reduce your out of pocket expenses.
Some eligibility requirements exist. To apply for CCB or to find out more about the payments available to parents please contact the Department of Human Services on 13 61 50 or go to their website.
Child Care Rebate
In addition to CCB, many families are also eligible for Child Care Rebate (CCR). CCR is not means tested – therefore you may be entitled to this even if your household is not eligible for CCB.
If you choose to have your CCR payments sent to Helping Hands, this can reduce your out of pockets expenses even further.
Some eligibility requirements exist, so please contact the Department of Human Services on 13 61 50 or go to their website to apply or find out more information.
