About our Vacation Care

We provide Vacation Care during the school holidays, which caters for the children of Normanhurst West Public School and the wider community who are currently attending primary school. Vacation Care is packed with exciting activities based on our Philosophy, Child observations and interests, My Time Our Place: Framework for School Age Care Outcomes, Child Development and Learning Theories that aims to keep the children stimulated and having lots of fun with their friends.
