Frequently asked questions

What is the quality of SCECS vacation care program?

The programs our qualified and experienced teams provide are specifically designed with each child and service in mind – you won’t find the same program at each SCECS service! A new program is carefully put together each vacation period, keeping our programs exciting and new. We offer a variety of fun experiences including games, drama, physical activity, cooking, craft, STEM activities, gardening and so much more.

How will you ensure the safety of our children?

At SCECS, safety of our children, staff and families is our number one concern.  The Educator to Child ratio of 1:15 for OSHC services applies in NSW.  This ratio means that for every 15 children in an OSHC service, there needs to be 1 Educator available. For example, for 30 children, 2 Educators working directly with the children.Our staff will be supervising at all times to ensure the safety of all. Risk assessments will be completed to ensure that any risks have been mitigated.

Our Statement of Commitment to Child Safety: SCECS is a Child Safe Organisation dedicated to the Protection of every child in our care. SCECS aims to create environments where children’s safety and wellbeing is the centre of thought, values and actions. This framework is underpinned by the United Nations Convention on the rights of Children and aims to ensure that every child’s safety and wellbeing is maintained.

What is the ratio of children to staff?

In NSW, the educator to child ratio is 1:15. This ratio means that for every 15 children that are present, there must be one educator on supervision. However, at SCECS, we have a minimum of 2 staff regardless of whether there are less than 15 children present.

Do you provide breakfast and afternoon tea?

Yes, we provide a range of nutritional, healthy foods for breakfast and afternoon tea. We are guided by the Eat Smart Play Smart (ESPS) manual. Each session, we offer a mix of various in-season fruit and vegetables, wholemeal breads, and cereals, heart-healthy lean protein and low-fat yogurt or cottage cheese. We are an allergy aware service.

What daily routine and types of activities can our children expect?

We work with children and families to develop a new and exciting program each week to ensure that children’s specific interests are captured, making their time at SCECS as fun as possible. SCECS takes a child-centred approach to programming, and provides a mix of educational, play and leisure based programs. We encourage families to provide feedback and suggestions. Additionally, educators also conduct spontaneous activities based on the direction of the children throughout the session.

Do you provide homework support?

Yes, we understand that time at home is precious and to support our families, we set up a well-resourced quiet space and allow time in our afternoon routine for homework. We work together in partnership with the parents to support your child’s homework needs.
