Vacation care operates from 7.30am to 6pm every school holidays. It is closed for two weeks from Christmas Day . The cost (before govt subsidy) is $48.50 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. Please choose this when you book online.
A large afternoon snack is offered daily, and lunch once per week (as notified on the 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.
BOOKINGS AND CANCELLATIONS
Please book in advance as some days fill up very quickly. All bookings must be completed online on the button above right.
PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO HIGH DEMAND WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING NON-ST PIUS FAMILIES, or FOUR YEAR OLDS (unless already at school)
Bookings not received two weeks in advance will incur an extra fee of $3 per child per day, unless pre-organised with the director. Any changes to bookings with less than 2 weeks notice, will also attract an extra $3 charge per child per day.
New St Pius X families will need to register/enrol online first before being able to complete vacation care bookings. A once-off enrolment fee ($20) applies for new families.
Failure to give 2 Working Days notice (ie not Saturdays or Sundays) of a cancellation will result in the full day’s fee being charged. While there is a demand for places, priority will be given to work-related families and children aged 5 – 12
Excursion times are approximate – please ensure children are at the program well before departure time.
The children do not need extra money for excursions, but they may take it for snacks and drinks on some excursions. Do not feel compelled to give your children spending money—only 50% bring it.
Please send warm jackets and wet weather gear every day in the winter months for when we go on excursions and hats in the summer. Please label – we get lots of lost property!
The program is subject to change, depending on the weather.
All children must be signed in and out every day.
All medication requirements must be notified to staff beforehand and signed into our medications book. Must have prescripiton label or doctor’s letter.
Nachos Club – a separate group for children in years 4 and above
Nachos Club is a separate 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.
Please note any variations on the program for older children on Excursions.
