Oodles of School Holiday Fun

We love designing our school holiday programs, with just one goal in mind - fun! (And safety, of course.) The children also get involved, sharing with us the activities and excursions they love doing. 

Our three Vacation Care centres operate during each school holidays – at Miranda (by Westfield), Burraneer Bay (at Burraneer Bay Public School) and Lucas Heights (at Lucas Heights Community School). Centres open 7am-6pm.

Our centres are also open the two days after school finishes – on Thursday 20 December and Friday 21 December. Be sure to book in early to secure school holiday care on these dates as demand is likely to be high for families with parents working on these days.

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

Our Early Bird fee is $54 per day is available until Midnight 14th December. After this date, the rate is $59 per day. Please note some excursion/activity costs are additional.

Do you need a Medical Management Plan form?

Medical Management Plans are a regulatory requirement and provide our Educators with the information required to best meet your child's medical needs. 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  • your child's current plan is out-of-date, or will be out-of-date in the holiday period you are booking in for (plans need to be updated every 12 months)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.
