Vacation care operates during all NSW school holidays and student-free days to provide a fun and caring environment for children aged five-12 years. Children must have started school (or be enrolled to attend school in the same year ) in order to attend.

The service operates Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) from 8.00am – 6.00pm at all three venues.
