Our upcoming Winter School Holiday Program will run from Monday 29 June to Friday 10 July.

Based on advice from the Department of Education and Department of Health and Human Services all activities will be conducted in-house. There will be no incursions or excursions during this Winter School Holiday Program.

If your child is aged between 5 – 12 years old and enrolled in primary school, our programs will continue to deliver them with experiences that are the right mixture of fun, adventure and interest based activities.

We have an exciting set of themed days planned across two weeks. Scroll down to view a full list of days or download our program flyer.

Please note: the daily fee listed in the flyer has been voided by the two-week extension of the Early Childhood Education and Care Relief Package to Sunday 12 July 2020. This program is free to families.
