Following the withdrawal of the previous provider, we have recently tendered the provision of an Outside School Hours Care (OSHC) service here at Morayfield State School.  As a result of the tender process, Helping Hands Network, a specialist Queensland based OSHC provider, has been appointed to operate and manage the Service.  The new service will commence on Monday 20 July 2015. 

 The service will operate as currently, from the old Preschool building.
The service will operates at the following times:
• Before school care:  6.30am till the start of school
• After School Care:  3pm – 6pm
• Vacation Care and Pupil Free Days:  7am – 6pm

The Helping Hands Network company philosophy is to provide more than just a child minding service.  They strive to build stronger, happier and healthier communities through the provision of quality childcare in partnership with children, parents and the school.  They tailor their programs to meet the local school community needs.  An information pack, including enrolment forms has been distributed to all families.  More information on the company can be found at
There is no charge to enroll in the service, and all families are encouraged to do so.  Even if you only need to use the service in absolute emergencies, enrolling provides your family with an extra safeguard.  It is a licensing requirement that children can only attend the service if an enrolment form has been completed.  Please return completed enrolment forms to the office as soon as possible.
Helping Hands Network actively cooperates with government agencies, schools and parents, to provide a high quality service, ensuring the use of the service and the payment of fees is convenient and affordable while providing exceptional value and a financial contribution to the school community.  The service attracts the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR).  The CCB and CCR is claimed directly from the Government, with parents just billed the difference.  Fees include a wide range of sport, craft, science and cooking activities, along with a healthy breakfast in the morning, afternoon tea in the afternoons and breakfast, morning and afternoon tea during vacation care.
