Getting started

All enrolment forms must be completed online by clicking the pink Enrol now! button on your school/centre’s landing page.
View the enrolment guide here.

If you are enrolling more than one child, you will need to complete a form for each child – this way we can make sure they have individual profiles set up.

P.S. There is no enrolment fee to join KidsCo OSHC!

Our team will then approve the request and you will be notified through the app.
Permanent/Recurring Bookings
Please email or call 1300 796 304 and our team can help you book weekly or fortnightly recurring bookings.

KidsCo is located at:
Thomastown Recreation & Aquatic Centre
52-54 Main St,
Thomastown VIC 3074

After creating an account, you will use the Xplor account to sign your child into Before School Care and out of After School Care.

During School Holidays and Pupil Free Days, you will need to sign your child in at the beginning of the session and sign them out when they are picked up.


There are 2 ways to your child in and out

Option 1:
You can use the Xplor app to scan the QR code at our centre.

Option 2:
You can use your cellphone number (used during registration) and 4-digit pin you created on our centre’s tablet.


If someone else is dropping off or picking up your child, you will need to add them to your account as a “Hub Guest”. Please follow the instructions here.

KidsCo understands that we can’t predict what happens in life, that’s why we don’t charge fees for late bookings, or cancellations.


Cancellation policy:
All cancellations notified to KidsCo 24 hours before the booked program start time are free of charge and your booking will be cancelled. Cancellations must be notified to the KidsCo team by one of the following methods:
  1. Through the Xplor Home App by requesting an “absence” on your child/ren’s booking
  2. By emailing
  3. By notifying the Director of Learning in person
Any cancellation requests received within 24 hours of the booked program start time will be marked as an absence.
Absence policy:
Your child will be marked absent if they do not attend their booked program and/or if you cancel a booking within 24 hours of the booked program start time. Absences will be charged and paid for in full. If you qualify for Child Care Subsidy (CCS), you will be charged the gap fee if your child is absent from their booked program.
Under the Child Care Subsidy, each child is granted 42 absences per financial year that are subsidised by a family’s regular CCS coverage. After those 42 absence days have been used-up, all absences afterwards are charged at full price. Please be aware that all absences from previous childcare centres are also considered.
Centrelink will not apply CCS to any absences where you have made bookings to reserve a space for your child(ren) who have not yet attended the service.
Late Fees
Families who do not collect their child after the Service’s close time will be charged a late fee of $1
per child per minute past closing time. This fee covers the cost of employing the staff required to
supervise a child outside operating hours. Child Care Subsidy will not be applied to late fees. It may
be waived at the discretion of the Nominated Supervisor.
