Bundoora Out of School Hours Care (BOSHCare)

Bundoora Primary School currently provides before school care, from 7.00am – 8.45am, and after school care, from 3.15pm – 6.00pm, Monday to Friday in our Out of School Hours Care (BOSHCare) room in Building 2.

Our BOSHCare Program  is delivered by qualified instructors. We endeavour to provide the highest quality care in a safe, enjoyable, stimulating and caring environment. Our BOSHCare Program includes a wide variety of activities that are thoroughly prepared and implemented to meet our children’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs. In this way, our Program complements our school’s activities and is consistent with our school’s policies and practices. It is acknowledged also that our Program enables parents to pursue options leading to their own employment, training, recreations and personal interests. Our children enjoy cooking, craft, games, indoor and outdoor activities, as well as a quiet homework/reading corner.

Bundoora Primary School BOSHCare is registered with the National Care Accreditation Council to participate in Outside School Hours Care Quality Assurance.

Bundoora Primary School booking and account management is managed via SmartFees but under the the Bundoora Primary School BOSHCare banner. Bookings can be made and managed online via this link – BOOKINGS.

Please note that payment for our BOSHCare Program is through a Direct Debit System, making the whole payment process much easier for parents/carers. In order for parents to receive the Childcare Scheme (means tested) through the Government, parents must register through Centrelink that their child(ren) will be attending an Out of School Hours Care Program. 

We employ staff each day based on the number of bookings we have. This is to make sure that we comply with the legal staff ratios. Therefore we require that people at least 24 hours notice of cancellation before the start of each session. This can be done online or by leaving a message on our phone (0467 712 368). If we do not receive notification of cancellation we will now be charging families for that session as we need to book and pay for staff.
