Enroling and booking your child into OSHC can be completed online through the My Family Lounge platform.

My Family Lounge is a third party platform which enables parents to enrol their children and manage their OSHC account. My Family Lounge can accept ongoing, casual (one-off), and vacation care bookings. While adding convenience, it is important to note:

  • My Family Lounge is not mobile friendly, sorry, you need to use a desktop.
  • To use My Family Lounge you first register your account, then complete an enrolment (this is the long part where we collect all the details), then make the booking.
  • My Family Lounge does not accept/store ongoing payment details. After creating your account and enroling your children, you need to also complete and submit a Direct Debit form. This form can be found at the bottom of this page and is an editable pdf which can be filled out on a desktop and sent back via email.
  • My Family Lounge has an app available to create casual bookings and to mark an upcoming absence for permanent bookings (you can't make a permanent booking through the app). Before using the app, you must register/create your My Family Lounge account (on a desktop). App User Guide
