Perthville Out Of School Hours


Our POOSH Service began operating an After School Care Service in September 2017. This was in response to the needs of families living in and around the Perthville community. The Service operates from Perthville Public School Library and is licensed for 20 Children per day and is always staffed by a minimum of two experienced and qualified Educators. The service comes under the National Regulations using the My Time, Our Place Framework. As a new service we are yet to be assessed and rated, however we are due to undergo assessment and rating during February. 

The Childcare Benefit is available for all sessions to assist families with the costs. Parents/carers will need to register with Centrelink and provide their child/ren's CRN and date of birth. Full fees will be charged until the Service receives notification of eligibility. 

Currently we are focusing on our After School Care Service to ensure that we can maintain quality and viability into the future. We will offer care on Pupil free days and during School holidays (Vacation Care) as the need arises. However there is a minimum of 10 children on any one day for either of these services to operate.
