School Holiday Programme $55 per day.

We run programmes over the Christmas and all 4 school term holiday’s.  As most children are so busy throughout the term we like to make the holiday time just that… a holiday.  Depending on the children that are booked in and their likes, we run the programme to inspire them, while feeling relaxed and fully rested. 

From time to time I will add an extra flare into the mix with a project of some kind, Movie making, Art and Crafts, dress making and the likes.

Cooking in the morning, serves as there afternoon tea and slip a movie in with popcorn in their chill out time.

Starts at 9am – 3pm    

(You will need to provide their lunch and drink bottle.)


Apart from the School Holiday Programme, note that all of the above includes the following:

Breakfast consists of cereal, porridge, toast, drink and piece of seasonal fruit.

Afternoon tea after once child’s food in lunch box is eaten, is a sandwiches, piece of seasonal fruit / Celery and carrot sticks.  Summer treat (ice block)

Drinks: Hot Milo (winter) and Always water.

No food to be given after 4pm unless your child is going to a sport programme when they leave my care.
