School Holiday Programme

We run programmes over all 4 School term Holidays.  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, dressmaking and the likes.

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

You will need to provide their lunch and drink bottle.

9am – 3pm Cost per day $85.  Extra hours required, standard pricing applies.
