Confidential, sector specific support and information

Membership restricted to South Australia child care and OSHC services.

Child care and Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) services are complex organisations. They must comply with quality assurance, regulations, standards and laws governing industrial relations and Work Health and Safety while maintaining financial viability and, most importantly, providing a quality environment for children.

The staff of Network SA Extra understand the children’s services sector.  We care about the outcomes for children in your care.  We appreciate that the role of a children’s services Director is complex and demanding.  We value the work of children’s services staff.

Our annual subscription will entitle you to unlimited confidential calls or emails to us, when you need help on industrial and legal accountability matters relating to employment.  Our staff have specialist skills and knowledge in human resource and financial management in a children’s services context and access to specialist industrial support.

Please note that, as this is a low cost service, we cannot advise on individual Enterprise Agreements. We can however refer you to specialists in negotiating these agreements.
