These observations will include an analysis of learning and
forward planning for your child. They will be referenced to the
Early Years Learning framework.
You are most welcome to enquire about your child’s progress
and request a meeting with your child’s teacher to discuss
their learning at any time throughout the year.
A fee schedule for Early Learning and OSHC is available from
the College website.
Government Assistance with Fees
The Scotch Oakburn Early Learning Centre is an approved
provider and therefore the Child Care Rebate (CCR) and Child
Care Benefit (CCB) apply to all Early Learning and Out of
School Hours Care fees. You can apply for these benefits in
person or online through Centrelink.
For online applications visit
Child Care Rebate is not income tested and covers 50% of
“out-of-pocket child care costs” (i.e. fees charged less any
Child Care Benefit paid), up to a maximum amount per child,
per year. A small number of parents who do not satisfy the
straightforward criteria may not be eligible.
Child Care Benefit is income tested and the amount of
assistance will vary according to family income.
Payment of Fees
Fees are invoiced fortnightly in arrears and are payable by
direct debit only (financial institution or credit card). Fees will
be invoiced every day of your child’s enrolment, including days
on which your child does not attend due to sickness or other
reason. Cancellation policies apply to all OSHC programs.

Assessment and Reporting
Your child’s learning and development will be continually
assessed and ongoing observations made by educators will be
documented. These provide the basis for planning the learning
program offered. Your child’s progress and development will
be recorded and assessed through written and photographic
evidence and work samples.
Communication with you and your child about their learning will
occur informally through conversation, digitally on The Dash
and in writing through notes in their planner. In addition, a
structured program of formative assessment will occur.
In Term 1, ‘Parent Student Teacher’ conferences provide the
opportunity to discuss your child’s start to the year, their current
stage of development and goals for the future.
