Outside School Hours Care

Meriden’s Before School and After School Care programs are operated by Camp Australia, a leading provider of high-quality OSHC services. The programs offer a safe and caring environment for children to play, form friendships and create positive memories. A host of varied and fun activities are included in the programs and breakfast and afternoon tea are served daily. Homework and quiet time are also encouraged and supported to ensure children are ready to return home at the end of a busy day.

Enrolment, bookings and payment for the Before School and After School Care programs are made directly with Camp Australia. A range of packages are available to suit various schedules.

Child Care Subsidy

The Government's new Child Care Subsidy (CCS) applies to fees from 2 July 2018. This subsidy replaces the previous Child Care Rebate (CCR) and Child Care Benefit (CCB).To claim the CCS, you must log onto the MyGov website and complete your CCS assessment. Please note that if you were receiving CCR or CCB in the past your information does not automatically roll over to the new system and you may not receive any subsidy if you do not complete your assessment on MyGov. Any eligible claims made after the launch of CCS will be backdated up to 28 days.

You can estimate what your CCS might be by using the Government's Payment and Services Finder.
