Our mission is in caring with kindness and wisdom, meeting the developmental, social, cultural, recreational and creative needs of your child, conducting the link between school and home. The Beachlands Oscar Programme is a member of, and has been set up under, the guidelines of OSCAR (Out of School Care And Recreation.)
We have three after school programmes running:
Kowhai 1 Years 0, 1 & 2 operating from the Oasis Room.
Kowhai 2 Years 3 & 4 operating from the School Hall.
Rimu 1 & 2 Years 5 - 8 operating from Kaiawa Gardens
The programmes are not highly structured but do include two planned activities each session. Art/Craft materials and games for different ages and sports equipment are all available. The children also have access to the Homework centre at a certain time each day for quiet reading and homework
The children have the use of the courts area, middle and upper playground and the swimming pool. All activities are supervised whether indoor or outdoor.
Before School Care operates from the Oasis Room daily – 7.00am – 8.15 pm. Cost $10.00 per session including breakfast. Bookings and enrolments are required.
The Programme Supervisors are: Jane Foote – Kowhai 1, Tania Foote - Kowhai 2 and Debbie Lightfoot Rimu 1 & 2.
Children may come to OASIS on a regular or casual basis. OASIS provides a safe and well-managed service for parents and children, ensuring that all children expected to attend OASIS will be accounted for. The supervisors will check each day that all those children whose attendance has been advised to OASIS are present. In the event that any of those children do not arrive at OASIS as expected, the supervisor will follow up with parents/caregivers to ascertain the child’s whereabouts.
Non – attendance without notification will be charged at the normal daily rate to cover the cost of a staff member’s extra time and resources. If a notified absence occurs before 9.00am on the day of booking, 1 hour session fee will be charged. If a child/ren are not attending for multiple sessions, 1 working week (5 days) notification is needed to incur no charges, failure to do so will incur full session charges.
Notification of a casual attendance must be made before 2:00pm on the day that care is required. (Unless emergency care is necessary.)
Parents should note that OASIS cannot take any responsibility for their child/ren’s arrival at OASIS if their attendance has not been previously notified to staff.
Regulars: Regular attendees designate the days of the week they will be attending on enrolment. They will be expected at After School Care on those days unless staff have been notified in advance by a parent/caregiver.
Casuals: Casuals are children who occasionally attend. Attendance of casuals should be
notified by 2.00pm on the day of attendance.
Child Age Range: 5 – 13 years
Staff/Child ratio: 1:10 inside
