Vacation Care

We provide Vacation Care during the school holidays in April, July and September / October as well as during the last 2-3 weeks in January, which caters for children attending Normanhurst Public School. Other families whose children do not attend the school may still apply to the Director. Children must be younger than 12 years old and currently attending primary school.

Vacation Care is packed with many theme days and activities in centre as well as incursions and excursions.
