Vacation Care

OODLES OF SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN.jpg

 

We love designing our Vacation Care programs, with just one goal in mind - fun! (And safety, of course.)

The children even help by telling us what they'd like to do each school holidays.  Here's a sample of the fun planned for the April holidays:

  • A humorous and dynamic Jollybops science show
  • An interactive paper pilots ‘flight school’ workshop
  • Sports, including a Mini Olympics event  
  • Slime fun
  • Excursions destinations including Future Park at the Powerhouse Museum, Lollipop’s Playland, a ferry ride to Bundeena for a picnic lunch, a live theatre show at the Engadine Community Centre - and much more.

Parents/carers can submit their enrolment form for one of our three centres: 

  • Burraneer Bay (7am-6pm): Kindergarten -12 years
  • Miranda (7am-6pm): Kindergarten - 14 years
  • Lucas Heights (7am-6pm): Kindergarten -14 years   

Our Miranda centre will also open on Monday 30 April, which is a pupil free day for Miranda Public School.

Council's Vacation Care is a safe environment for children, with robust policies and procedures overseen by Council's quality specialists. 

Our Vacation Care teams are looking forward to a fun and engaging school holiday program with the children.

Medical Management Forms

Medical Management Plans are a regulatory requirement and provide Educators at our Vacation Care centres with the information required to best meet your child's medical needs.

Do you need to complete a Medical Management Plan form for your child during the next school holidays?

You will need to complete a Medical Management Plan if:

  • your child is new to Sutherland Shire Council Vacation Care and has been diagnosed with a medical condition.
  • has recently been diagnosed with a medical condition and this is the first Vacation Care period since the diagnosis.
  • your child's current plan is out-of-date, or will be out-of-date in the holiday period you are booking in for (plans need to be updated every 12 months)
  • your child's medical condition has changed or the management of the condition has changed.

Medical conditions include asthma, anaphylaxis, diabetes, an allergy requiring medication on contact allergen, etc.

All Medical Plans must be updated annually or as any changes to your child's medical condition or management of the condition occur.

Where can I access the form?

Please refer to the link below

What happens after I complete the plan?

Our Vacation Care Director will contact you to clarify the details and discuss the management of the condition. There may be further information or forms to be completed and collected at this time (e.g. Asthma action plan or medication form). Once all forms and information are completed, we provide these to our Educators located in the centre your child is booked into, ensuring they are familiar with your child's condition and the management of the condition.

What if I’m unsure whether a Medical Management Plan is required?

Please contact our Customer Service team on 9710 0466 if you have any queries regarding whether a Medical Management Plan form is required.
