Vacation Care

limbo! We believe that School Aged Children experience learning in a wide range of settings (My Time Our Place Framework pg.7) Our Vacation Care program reflects our children’s interests and requests is filled with exciting activities prepared by the staff in collaboration with the children to provide play, excitement, learning, leisure, development and many more opportunities during the School Holidays for children and their peers both at the centre and on excursions.
