Outside School Hours and Vacation Care
Heights College is delighted to welcome enrolled students to our own accredited Outside School Hours Care and Vacation Care programs, incorporating Kindy through Year 6. We have outstanding inside and outdoor facilities, and hand-picked staff to provide a safe, fun and nurturing experience for our students. Casual and permanent OSHC and Vacation Care bookings are available all 50 weeks that our service is open. Conditions for bookings and cancellations are outlined in the OSHC Handbook. It’s particularly important to note booking closing dates for ‘permanent Vacation Care bookings’ - scroll down to the end of this page.
Kindergarten will continue to operate as Wrap Around Kindy Care (WAKC), now including Vacation Care, situated at the Kindergarten premises.
Prep – Year 6 will run from the OSHC building next to the Oval.

How to Register Students
One Registration form per family per year is required for all students enrolling in Prep – Year 6 OSHC and/or Vacation Care programs. Although this seems an overlap with information you have already supplied to the school, we require this information to be separately on hand to meet accreditation requirements. Please complete this Family Registration Form (editable PDF).
Kindergarten students enrolling in WAKC and/or WAKC Vacation Care programs are not required to complete a Registration Form, as we have all details already in our QikKids system.
