In a nutshell – what’s new? Minimum operating requirements

  • Services will no longer be required to operate for a certain number of weeks. OOSH services will only now have to operate for a minimum of 7 weeks per year.
  • This gives services flexibility over the numbers of days to open Vac Care for, especially in rural and small services where sometimes there is no demand on certain days.
  • New hourly rate – for OOSH will be $10.10
  • ALL OOSH services will now have ONE provider number not one for each component… This will be a lot easier for services.
  • Allowable absences remain the same 42 days.
