Overdue Accounts By confirming bookings, you understand that as a condition of enrolment and attendance at the OSCAR programme, that payment for this service is due within 14 days of the invoice date. Any collection costs for outstanding accounts are payable by the client. Your children will not be permitted to attend programmes until debt is cleared.
WINZ Clients As a parent receiving a WINZ subsidy, it is your responsibility to ensure WINZ is making payment of subsidy and to notify WINZ of a change in hours for your subsidy. Your child must attend the hours applied for. Any WINZ overpayments are refunded back to WINZ. You will not receive payment from WINZ for hours not attended. You are required to pay the balance between the WINZ subsidy and the cost of care you receive. In the event that WINZ does not pay, you are liable for all fees.
Signing In and Out All children must be signed in and out of the programme upon pick up and drop off. St Joseph's OSCAR is not responsible for children once signed out of the programme. If you require your child to make their own way to or from the service, please complete the consent form (available from OSCAR). If your child is to be collected by any other person than those detailed on the enrolment form, please advise OSCAR.
Illness Parents or emergency contacts will be contacted to collect children who are unwell or need moderate medical attention. In serious cases, an ambulance will be called. The client has responsibility for any costs that are incurred as a result of medical attention required. Any child with a fever, rash, sticky eyes, diarrhoea or vomiting is required to stay home until 24 hours after symptoms settle.
