Bookings for April School Holiday Programs Now Open
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 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 School Holiday Programs run at the following locations across Canberra. All locations are able to care for children in preschool to year 6, except for Amaroo which does not take preschool.

Meanwhile, you are welcome to book into any of our other school holiday program locations during this period.
This April, we have a range of exciting excursions, in-service activities, as well as incursions (visits from activity providers to the schools) planned to ensure your children have a fun-filled time. Popular activities include:
Please note that all activities may not be available at all locations. Activities are subject to change owing to COVID-19 restrictions and advice from ACT Health. We’ll strive to keep families informed directly via email.
