Outside Hours School Care
Livingstone Early Learning Centre provides Outside Hours School Care Programs for Livingstone families. The programs provide interactive care for before, after and school holiday care, which include; Brekky Club, Afternoon Club and Holiday Club.
Bookings and Fees
LOSHC asks that families nominate weekly or fortnightly bookings for their children at a permanent daily rate. Casual days are available at an additional daily cost. Should you require a casual booking, we ask that it is booked at least 24hours in advance to ensure that adequate staffing arrangements can be made to provide the highest quality of care for children. Of course, in an emergency we will be willing to take casual bookings via phone.
Enrolment forms must be completed prior to care commencing at LOSHC. These are available in person at the Early Learning Centre Office, and online at www.livingstone.qld.edu.au. Once enrolment is confirmed, booking requests can be made in person, via phone, or email up to 24 hours before care commences. Our service closes at 6pm. In the case of an emergency where you are unable to pick up your child by 6pm please inform educators by phoning the service. Failure to do so will result in a charge of $1 per minute after 6pm to cover educator additional wages.
As per Centre policies and procedures, all accounts are to be paid two weeks in advance. Any additional casual bookings will be added to the following scheduled payment. The service uses ezidebit as its payment method, and can be paid weekly or fortnightly to coincide with parent/carer pay cycles. An ezidebit consent form is located in enrolment packs.
Should you no longer require care for a booked session of Brekky Club or Afternoon Club, we ask that you inform the Early Learning Centre Office via phone, email or in person a minimum of 24 hours before to avoid being charged the full amount for the session. A failure to communicate that your child will not be attending, or if your child attends and is not booked in, will result in a non-communication fee of an additional $25. Once bookings are made for Holiday Club they are final and no refund will be given on cancellation. Casual days may be available on enquiry via phone or in person.
