Spring School Holiday Programs Coming Soon (September’21 Holidays)
Communities@Work offers School Holiday Programs throughout the year during all ACT School Holidays. Our programs focus on fun and delivering a new adventure every day for your child.
Our qualified and reliable educators provide more than just vacation care – they collaborate with children to ensure play, leisure and recreational activities are safe and meaningful. We place each child at the centre of our practice and build respectful and positive relationships with children, families and the community to develop connectedness, confidence and wellbeing.
Our school holiday programs generally include a variety of excursions to fun locations as well as incursions (external entertainment and activity providers conducting activities in-service). We run our holiday programs in several locations across Canberra and the ACT region.
Our Daily highlights (program calendars) provide a list of activities planned for each location by day, and can be downloaded from below when available for the next school holidays!
Our School Holiday Programs run at the following 12 locations across Canberra. All locations are able to cater to children in preschool to year 6, except for Amaroo, which is unable to care for preschool-aged children:
Our programs run from 7:30 am to 6 pm on weekdays. Spring School Holiday Programs will run from Monday 20 September 2021 to Friday 1 October 2021.
Each school holiday program sees a ton of fun excursions (trips to external locations), in-service activities, and incursions (visits from activity providers to the schools) that ensure a new adventure every day for the children. We are currently preparing the program for the Spring holidays and will update this page with more information when available. Check out what our families had to say about our previous School Holiday Programs here.
What does my child need to bring?
Your child will need to bring a healthy morning tea, lunch, a hat and a drink bottle. Please note that unfortunately we cannot cook or reheat lunches.
What should my child wear?
Anything that is comfortable and easy to move in. For activities that involve water (specified in the program calendars), we also recommend the child to bring a change of clothes.
Are the activities the same for all age groups?
Each program is different, but we always ensure that all activities are age-appropriate. All our locations are able to cater for children from pre-school to Year 6, except for Amaroo which is unable to care for preschool-aged children.
Communities@Work is working to ensure that we are in the best position to support children, families, clients and our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to be guided by the latest regulatory advice from the ACT Government and ACT Health, ensuring the safety of your child is paramount. More information about this can be found on the dedicated COVID-19 page on our website.
