LOOSH offers a broad range of vacation care programming - designed to encourage children to be involved in a variety of fun and exciting activities. Programming includes a mixture of incursions and excursions, led by our experienced educators.
Vacation care is open to all members of the community from Kindy to Year 6, operating from 6:45am to 6:30pm.
The cost is $50 per day, plus any additional incursion or excursion fees. Any bookings made after the last day of term incur an additional $5 fee.
Below you can find a list of the programs on offer for the upcoming break.
Vacation care will include provision of morning and afternoon snacks, but students are required to bring their own lunch.
All bookings are made via the My Family Lounge App. For more information go to the Enrolments & Bookings page.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: To ensure we continue to do what is best to protect our families and the community, we we are continuing with our in-house programming only this October Vacation Care. We are disappointed to have to do this but we feel that by limiting visitors in the centre and travel to and from excursions it will help to limit any unnecessary exposure to children, staff and vulnerable community members while Covid-19 infection control measures are in place. We will be instead operating with in-house programming.
However, weather permitting we will be extending the opportunity to visit some of our local surrounding areas such as the Darks Common, netball courts and Lapstone Oval. We will ensure to seek permission from parents and caregivers to leave the centre on these days.
If you have questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact the centre.
