Out of School Hours and Vacation Care

Out of School Hours and Vacation Care programs are available throughout the year.

Heritage College provides two convenient services for families enrolled at the Early Learning Centre or primary school: Out of School Hours Care and Vacation Care. 


Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)

Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) is provided from the Early Learning Centre OSHC room at Officer. Run every school day from 7 am, the program provides care for primary school-aged children until school begins. On arrival at the centre in the afternoons, the children are given a light afternoon tea before settling into activity groups. A convenient shuttle transports students from the Narre Warren South campus daily to OSHC at Officer campus. Casual or permanent bookings are available. Hours are 7 am-8.30 am and 3.15 pm-6 pm each day of the school term. 


Vacation Care

Open to students from Prep-Year 6, Vacation Care runs every school holiday break, offering care options for working families through the holidays. Exciting activities are planned both on campus and off with experienced educators. Morning and afternoon tea is served. Children will need to bring a packed lunch. Just before each holiday break, the Vacation Care program is circulated and parents can opt-in for days of their choice. Hours are 7 am-6 pm each day of the school holidays.
