Children With Additional Needs

Our Vacation Care Programs are additional needs and disability friendly.  However, before enrolment we do require detailed information about your child's individual needs.  If your child has high support needs, additional support may be accessed via the Federal Government's Inclusion Support Subsidy (ISS).  The application process can take some time as we consult with schools and complete an assessment to determine if your child's needs will be met at Vacation Care.  Please allow at least eight weeks before enrolment

Contact our Vacation Care Services Co-ordinator on 9942 2576 as early as possible to ensure that your child can access all aspects of the program.  


You can choose to pay for vacation care either by credit/debit card or by BPay. 

All payments are processed after the school holidays when we have received all the subsidy information from Centrelink.
