Educators are employed by the school P&C Association and have relevant qualifications.


When enrolling your child, a choice of a permanent or a casual booking will be available.

If you choose to book your child in as a permanent booking this means that your child will attend Outside School Hours Care on set days each week or fortnight. Every time your child does not attend on a scheduled booked day it is very important that you contact the Coordinator before or on that day to inform them that your child will be absent that day, otherwise a fee will be charged.

If you choose to book your child in as a casual booking this means that your child is enrolled to attend Outside School Hours Care but has no set days for attendance. Every time your child attends Outside School Hours Care you must contact the Coordinator before or on that day in order to book your child in for the day. All bookings must be made through OSHC and not the school. Please contact the OSHC via email or text to make a casual booking.

The Outside School Hours Care enrolment form must be fully completed and Immunisation records must be handed into Outside School Hours Care before your child can commence care. Bookings and cancellations must be made through After School Care only. Completion of an enrolment form indicates your agreement to the fees, policies and conditions of Townsville South Outside School Hours Care. As a licensing requirement enrolment forms must be completed yearly.
