School holiday program - primary school

Council provides a high-quality, professional, flexible and fun vacation care program for primary school aged children.

Our program offer children:

  • secure and consistent care
  • a program that is child-focused, fun, interesting and stimulating
  • a variety of recreational experiences and opportunities
  • an environment that maintains a high standard of health, hygiene, safety and nutrition and where children are guided in appropriate routines.

Who is the program for?

The program provides care for children aged 5 to 12 years of age who are currently attending primary school. 

Council has made the decision to open Vacation Care for the winter program to assist families who require care for their children while they are participating in essential work.

Please note that this program is for children of essential workers and there will be limited vacancies available. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews is still encouraging families to work from home if they can and this program is available for families that will not have an adult in the home to care for their child/ren

When and where is it held?

The program runs between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday during school holidays. The program does not operate on public holidays.

The program is held at Springfield, Springfield Avenue, Croydon
