Our winter school holiday activities are sure to put the rosy back in their cheeks! Get in quick to guarantee your child’s spot.

We have every child in mind with long-day care, art exhibitions, swimming lessons and library programs.

Vacation Care

If you need your little ones to be cared for and entertained all-day, sign them up for fun games and craft at one of our all day Vacation Care centres. Parents can relax knowing their kids will be well looked after by our experienced and motivated educators.

The safety of our community and staff are our top priority. Based on advice from the NSW Government, our winter activities will be taking place in-centre. But this won’t change how much fun the kids have.
