As the staff to children ratio needs to be planned in advance, we ask all parents to also plan in advance. Students need to be booked into these programs to avoid a late booking charge and to give sufficient notice of cancellation to avoid cancellation fees.

We offer permanent and casual bookings at an affordable price to accommodate the needs of our families. Once enrolled, bookings can be made online at any time, up to 24 hours prior to the session of care.

Bookings made within two working days for a Holiday Program session will incur an extra charge of $10 per day per child. These additional charges are to support the engagement of additional team members at short notice.
