Arrival and Departure

Our Centres are open during all Government School terms, Monday to Friday. We are open at all sites during Vacation Care throughout school holidays. We close for Public Holidays and forChristmas closure periods. Christmas closure dates are Centre specific based on requirements and feedback from families.

Operating hours are different at each site - To find out operating hours for your school please go to http://jigsawoosh.com.au/our-centres

For Before School Care Children are to be dropped at the OOSH by their parent or guardian. Under no circumstances will we accept children from the front gate, in the car park or the outdoor play areas.This is not only unsafe, but also a bewildering experience for young children.

Please ensure that a staff member knows that your child has arrived and has accepted them for care for that session (ie after you have signed your child in, walk them over to an activity and settle them before leaving).

In order for families to receive the Child Care Subsidy and adhere to the Centre’s policies, all parents must sign in/out using the Qikkids Kiosk on the Centre iPad.

If your child is being collected by another adult, they must be named on your child’s enrolment form as having authorisation to do so.If they are not mentioned on this form we require you to complete an authorisation form nominating them to collect your child on the day. Without this, we are by law, not allowed to release your child.

We are not permitted to allow your child to leave the Centre with anyone under the age of 16, nor with someone who is unknown to us.
