April School Holiday Program Bookings now open

Please find attached the April School Holiday Program. Bookings open Monday 20th March 2017.

Planning our holiday program is a complex and intricate  process involving many steps including feedback from our key stakeholders- the children, our families and much critical reflection and documentation from our staff. Each potential experience  involves careful planning, comprehensive Risk Benefit Assessments (RBA) and thorough deliberation  before they are included in our program .  There are many other factors which are also included in our planning cycle- children needs, staffing ratios, qualification & experience , food safety requirements, transportation, environmental factors just to name a few.

Most importantly we value fun!

After School Activities enrolments now open

[2017 After School Activities enrolments now open]

2017 After School Activities enrolments are now open. To enrol your child please complete an enrolment form and return via email or post to PO Box 3302 Manuka ACT 2604. If you are not currently enrolled with FOOSHC you will also need to complete an Ezidebit form.
For regular users of the activities program you will notice that the program has been reduced. This was a result of a business review during 2016 with the smaller activities being identified as not cost effective.
We hope your children can still find an activity to suit them. Enrolments close 1st February 2017, early enrolment will ensure a place in chosen activities.
