Vacation Care

ERC’s Vacation Care is a licensed care service, catering for children aged 5 to 12 years of age*.  It is run by consistent, dedicated and qualified staff.IMG_6769

Our program ensures that we have a mixture of activities to cater for the diversity of children in our care. Emphasis is placed on our service being ‘child focused’ – that means children get to have a say in what activities they do. We have many physical, social, cognitive, quiet activities including days out of the centre and visiting guests.

Our Vacation Care is linked to a secure online portfolio system called Educa, where families can see their child’s learning, including photos, stories and news through the internet. Further information on this can be found at: Educa+For+Parents
