Robina State School OSHC provides a safe place where children can engage in a range of play and leisure experiences that allow them to feel happy, safe and relaxed, interact with friends, practice social skills, try new activities and learn life skills.
Robina State School OSHC believes that the best interests of the children and their right to learn play and grow in a safe and nurturing environment is the primary consideration in all decision making at the centre and is visible in the actions, interactions and daily work with the children.

WHO CAN USE THIS SERVICE
All Robina Primary School students are eligible to attend our centre, from Prep to Grade 6.
Vacation Care is a community service, therefore all Primary School students are eligible to attend.
All staff, including volunteers, hold a current Blue Card approved by the QLD Government, allowing them to work with children.
Our team consists of experienced and passionate educators, all with Senior First Aid certificates.
Our staff-to-child ratios are in accordance with the Education and Care Services National Law (Queensland) Act 2011 and Education and Care Services National Regulations, as part of the National Quality Framework.
Under new Government requirements, our centre must hold a current Child Care Licence.
We are licenced by the QLD Office for Early Childhood Education and Care (Ph 1800 637 711) under the National Law & Regulations, thus allowing us to provide a quality monitored service to our community.
Due to these requirements, we can take a maximum of 135 children per morning, 135 per afternoon and 135 in Vacation Care.
We take enrolments at the end of Term 4 for the following year which may secure places for children depending on availability.
However we have an ever increasing number of families wanting to utilise our centre, therefore we maintain a waiting list which is continually updated.
Our centre caters for children from Prep to Grade 6. Family participation and feedback are much appreciated.
Our Policy and Procedure Handbook, including our Grievance Policy, is obtainable at the OSHC office for your perusal.
