Prices for Vacation Care
Our Vacation Care program follows a daily itinerary just like a holiday kids club offering a number of visitors and special equipment every session.
We run multiple activities daily and all children are encouraged to complete and take home their creations. Children participate in multiple challenges, sports and games.
We always have a key activity or focus of the day.
The program is built from children's and families' interests, you will find many of your suggestions from the last school holidays programmed for April.
Our Excursions include entry fees into the various venues and Private Coach Hire, including seatbelts and Air Conditioning. During Excursions, our Ratio of Staff to Children is also increased due to being off-site.
