A nourishing afternoon tea is provided each day, served between 3:15pm and 4:00pm. Birthday Cakes are most welcome at the time of your child’s birthday (Please note our after school numbers can be in excess of 85 children, and we have found that individually wrapped lollies such as lollipops work well and cater for vegetarians, and children with most other dietary requirements).

Please be aware that for full day bookings (vacation care/pupil free days) children will need to bring their own lunch and morning tea.

We would like to encourage all families to be aware of our allergy-friendly service, and avoid providing your child with any products that contain nuts.

For detailed information regarding our meals, please refer to the menu.

Dietary requirement

Our centre ensures that all children with special dietary requirements are adequately catered for.
If your child has food allergies, please ensure the coordinator is verbally notified as well as noting this on your child’s enrolment form.

Children with Special Needs

Our centre caters for children with special needs and is able to access Inclusion Support for these children in some situations.


At Epping Heights OSHC we provide the option of a quiet time and space in the afternoon for the children to complete their homework. It is part of our Centre Philosophy to ensure that the children in our care are active and spending their time play-based learning. It is for this reason that homework time is available after 5pm. It is at your discretion as to whether you would like your child to complete homework at OSHC. Please advise Staff, preferably in writing, if you would like your child to complete homework. We will endeavour to ensure they are encouraged to do their homework, but cannot force them to do so.
