Vacation Care

We provide high quality care during the School Holidays for the children of Castle Cove Public School and primary school children (K-6) from the wider community. Our Vacation Care days are packed with exciting activities that take place both in and out of the Centre. Our program aims to keep your children entertained and ensure that they having lots of fun with their friends.

Vacation Care Opening Hours

7:15am- 6:00pm

Important Information | Two really important things to remember over vacation care.

  • Firstly, every child needs to be supplied morning tea, lunch AND an afternoon snack.

We had several children attend the movie day who did not have any food at all – they were ravenous by the time we got back to the Centre having only had a Fruit Stopper and a small box of popcorn.

The Kids Castle does not supply food during vac care, and if your child has food allergies and/or intolerances, We cannot guarantee the centre will have appropriate food stuffs available during vacation sessions.

  • Secondly, the Centre is a NUT FREE ZONE.

Due to the severity of an anaphylactic reaction, it is important for all parents to be aware of the ingredients of items in your children’s lunch boxes.
