Vacation Care Program

Our Vacation programs are developed and supervised by our trusted educators from our Before & After School Centres (BASC). We are located at Oyster Bay BASC (Bonnet Bay BASC due to commence in 2015) and operate 7am – 6pm during school holidays (Excluding public holidays and 2 weeks over Christmas break). We educate and care for children K-6 from Sutherland Shire schools. Children have access to a large grassed area for sport activities, climbing equipment and a large indoor area for a variety of activities.

Our Vacation Care program is based on the My Time, Our Place framework and the National Quality Framework. It acknowledges the importance of play and leisure in children’s learning and development and that their learning is not limited to any particular time or place. The framework recognises the importance of social and emotional development and communication in learning through play and leisure, and forms the foundation for ensuring that children in all school age care settings engage in quality experiences for rich learning, personal development and citizenship opportunities. 

With a strong focus on this quality framework, your child will enjoy lots of activities including:

  • Arts and crafts

  • Games

  • Gardening and cooking

  • Homework groups

  • Music and dance

  • Sport and fitness

Even though our educators ensure your child is having fun, making friends and enjoying new experiences, they do this by following an important part of the My Time, Our Place Framework by ensuring the following learning outcomes are achieved:

  1. Children have a strong sense of identity

  2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world

  3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

  4. Children are confident and involved learners

  5. Children are effective communicators
