Vacation Care

The Vacation care program is packed with exciting and new activities for the children to experience! Our fabulous program is proving very popular with children of all ages.

 

If you do not attend Connells point Public School you are still most welcome to attend our Vacation Care Service. We currently have many families from other schools that utilise our service, due to our great reputation!

 

To attend Connells Point Vacation Care, a child must be enrolled in primary school. That is children who are enrolled to start kindergarten can attend the January vacation care, as can the children who attended year 6 the previous December, as per government requirements.

Our staff ratio is 1 staff member to 15 children while at the centre, for excursions it is 1 staff member to 8 children.
