Waiver fees set aside

26 March 2020

In these challenging time we want to continue to support education and care service and families. As families circumstances change, services have reported changes in attendance patterns with the number of children generally reducing, but sometimes rising. Some services are finding it difficult to meet requirements for educator qualifications and ratios. Our Minister has stated that OSHC and Vacation Care services should remain open during the pupil free days and school holidays.

If your service needs to apply for a waiver because of some change related to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) we will waive or refund the application fee for the waiver. Naturally we will also undertake to assess your application as a priority. Unless advised by SA Health to close, please think about applying for a waiver as an option that is preferred over closing your service.
