Our Vacation Care Program is jam-packed with fun activities and various “theme days”. Our program incorporates a range of craft, games, sports, cooking, project work and free play activities. In amongst all the excitement, there are also opportunities for some holiday rest and relaxation as well. We also include a range of incursions and excursions in our Vacation Care program, and these may vary for different age groups. Bookings open at 7am on Monday of week 7 of each term and can be made through the Xplor app.
Please refer to our vacation care program for specific details regarding theme days, incursions, excursions, additional costs and daily requirements.

Booking Vacation Care and Pupil Free Days
All excursions require a permission form to be completed. These will be emailed out at the start of the vacation care program.
Excursions LEAVE ON TIME, if you are late your child/children may miss out and you will still need to pay excursion fees as per our policy.
Any requests to cancel bookings require seven days written notice, as we are required to confirm numbers with vendors and assist with staffing arrangements. All cancellations must be made through the Xplor app. If you are outside the cancellation window, you will be charged full fees and an absence will be marked.
If your child is absent during the vacation care period, the same absence policy as term time applies. You will need to mark your child absent via the Xplor app. This is available to download via your app store.
If you are new to our Service or have any questions regarding booking into Vacation Care, please contact our Management team via email.
