Vacation Caremudcakes

Our vacation care program operates from 7.30am to 6pm every school holidays. It closes for one week of the year and that is between Christmas Day and New Year's Day each year. The cost (before govt subsidy) is $48 per child per day on non-excursion days and $58 on excursion days. There is an extra option for Movie days which is $66 and this cost also includes a popcorn and drink combo (or sometimes a choc top). Please indicate this when you book online.

We provide a large afternoon snack daily and lunch once or twice a week (as notified on the written program). Children are expected to bring their own recess every day and lunch on the days where it is not advertised on the program. Breakfast is available for those children who arrive before 8.10am in the mornings.

Nine Plus - a separate group for children aged nine years

Nine Plus children have their own room with board games, magazines, music, art and electronic equipment.
The children are given more responsibility and higher expectations. Any child failing to be responsible will, as a consequence, return to the general group.
