School Holiday Programs, or Vacation Care programs, are provided to assist families with the care of their primary aged children during school holiday periods. They are intended to provide a safe, stimulating space for children to enjoy while families meet their work or study commitments.
The City of Monash offers three holiday programs in our community. These programs are play/ recreation based programs designed to offer a wide range of indoor and outdoor experiences for children. Programs are intended to provide children with opportunities to learn, socialise and be involved. Planned experiences are flexible so that they can be tailored to meet the needs and interests of the children in our care. Children are also encouraged to create their own games and activities at the program, as we believe play provides children with a variety of learning opportunities. Educators encourage children to make the most of a variety of play spaces and resources available to them and we strive to create an environment where children feel like they belong.
All City of Monash Holiday Programs are approved services. We operate under the Education and Care Services National Law Act 2010 and the Education and Care Services National Regulations 2012. Educators are also guided by approved learning frameworks such as My Time, Our Place in providing a quality service. Programs operate from 7.30am - 6.00pm week days during school holidays for up to 10 weeks of the year. Brochures are available approximately a month prior to school holidays from Council libraries, Council buildings and most local schools.
It’s school holiday time again, it’s nearly winter and you’re probably looking for things to keep your children busy…. well, look no further! We have three holiday programs for primary aged children in Monash which run in Glen Waverley, Mount Waverley and Chadstone.
From July 1st – 12th your children can come along and join in on a range of fun activities. These holidays, we will make the most of the cold weather and make our own fresh bread. We’ll also keep warm and get fit during our Kids Boot Camp! There’ll be boxercise, skipping and an obstacle challenge to test our abilities. We’ll also explore all things out of this world with space themed activities and on another day, we’ll venture off to the theatre for a special performance of Cinderella.
There really is lots to do at our holiday programs. Each day children can be involved in different games, creative activities and cooking experiences too. Best of all, they have lots of time to create their own experiences and make new friends as well!
