School Holiday Program

The School Holiday Program is a fun, inclusive and flexible program designed for children 5-12 years of age who are attending Primary School.

A range of leisure time experiences constructed by children and supported by informed educators promote children’s dynamic, complex and holistic learning. Children actively construct their own understandings and contribute to others’ learning. They recognise their agency, capacity to initiate and lead learning, and their rights to participate in decisions that affect them, including their learning.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

In line with advice from government health authorities, City of Greater Geelong Autumn 2020 school holiday program will continue to run.

However, all excursions to public places have been cancelled. Activities will take place within the City's child and family centres.

Fees will reflect centre-based fees.

We have sought feedback from the children regarding their interests and due to the recent years events the 2021 Summer program has been planned a little differently, we cannot guarantee excursions or incursions due to the uncertainty of health and government restrictions.  Instead of themed days a range of experiences will be available for the children to choose from each day, from setting up cafes to having rainy day board games, the days events will be limited only by their imagination. 

Professional and qualified staff are on hand to help children build their cooperation skills, respect and independence, all the while ensuring they enjoy their holidays in a safe, fun and welcoming environment.
