Due to the excessive amount of walk ins over the past term (people dropping their children off without communicating with the OSHC educators beforehand), the P & C have decided that it is appropriate to issue an extra charge of $5 for Before School Care and After School Care, and $10 for Vacation Care.
This charge will be for those who have not booked either by phone or email by 6pm the night before.This decision has been made due to our policies and procedures which states that the Mayfield State School Outside School Hours Care must run within a 1:12 ratio. If we do not comply with this and we are 'on the spot' audited, we will no longer be able to service the school.
We have had many days where we have had 14 or more children written on the roll without notice. This means that two extra staff are needed, and often we won't be able to find two people for a 2 hour shift at such short notice. The educators at Mayfield OSHC, along with the P & C, hope that you will understand our reasoning behind this new change.
