Resources for kids during isolation

We’re all indoors for the foreseeable future, and a lot of kids will be getting very bored, very quickly – and while it’s a daunting prospect, there are plenty of activities to keep us all going.

We're here to support you during this time with as many fun ways to pass the time with your children as possible.

We have compiled some links below that we believe to be useful and interactive for both Parents & Kids

Our Staff

Our staff have extensive experience in teaching primary aged children, childcare and coaching a variety of sports. All staff have Working With Children Checks and relevant First Aid qualifications.

Many are also specialists in a specific sport and bring a wealth of experience to our program- check out the highlights above to see some exciting features of our upcoming program.

Drop Off and Pick Up

We offer drop off from 8am, enabling children plenty of time to get to know their coaches before jumping into their first fun session.

With breaks for morning tea and lunch, the day's activities will wrap up around 3:30pm. Children may be collected at this point or, if a later time is better, they may join us for After Care - please see below for more information.

After Care

Once the day's sporting activities are over, children are welcome to stay on for After Care in our function spaces.

Complete with engaging board games, a movie and quiet spaces to read, relax and more, this is ideal for parents who need flexible hours to pick up their children. Children are more than welcome to bring a book. Don't forget to pack an afternoon snack!

After Care costs an additional $20 and runs until 5:30pm.

Coding Workshops

codingEdge Technology run coding, electronics and robotics workshops alongside our Holiday Program. The workshops are suitable for children with little to no coding experience through to experienced coders.

Please note that the coding workshops have separate activities, staffing and registration forms to the Holiday Program listed above.
