Vacation Care

About Vacation Care:

We provide Vacation Care during school holidays, to cater for children of Truscott Street Public School and the wider community. Vacation Care is packed with exciting activities such as excursions, incursions and theme days. Our program aims to keep your children entertained during holidays and ensure they have lots of fun with their friends.

 Vacation care days can either be:

In Centre days where all activities are run by centre staff

Excursion days where we take the children to a venue either by hire bus or public transport.

Children will be provided with fluorescent vests and wristbands detailing the Centre’s name and mobile phone, which must be worn during the excursion.
