All about OSHC!

Meals

Breakfast is provided for children attending Before School Care and is served each morning from 7:00am until 8:00am. Afternoon tea is provided for all children attending After School Care. Families provide morning tea and lunch during Vacation Care. We aim to provide nutritious and varied breakfasts and afternoon teas for the children attending the Centre. Information regarding menu selections is available for parents to access at the Centre.

Frequently an afternoon activity will include cooking a range of healthy, multicultural foods. On special occasions such as birthdays, children will cook foods like cakes and biscuits. Children are able to consume these during the afternoon or take them home. Cooking is a favourite activity and is included in our weekly programming.

Dietary requirement

Our centre ensures that all children with special dietary requirements are adequately catered for. Consistent with Normanhurst West Public School policy, we are a nut free centre and all appropriate measures are taken when preparing food for children with allergies. Our menu caters for vegetarian children and is both varied and nutritious.

We aim to ensure the Centre is a “Nut Free Zone”, as such all foods purchased for meals do not contain nuts and parents are asked to ensure that any additional food that is packed for their children to consume during Before and After School Care
and Vacation Care, do not contain nuts, e.g. no peanut butter, or nutella spread etc. We appreciate your help in doing so!

Children with Special Needs

Our centre caters for children with special needs and is able to access Inclusion Support for these children in some situations. Please advise our Centre Co-ordinator when you enrol if your child has special needs.
