Seems like we're just back from the long summer hols and suddenly the Easter holidays are looming. Two weeks of most likely rubbish weather with housebound small children who've eaten too much chocolate. Hooray.
As well as family day care and other child care services, Out of School Hours services often run Vacation Care during the school holidays. They are usually brilliant and great value, offering heaps of activities like pet farms, science days, and excursions that are included in the price.
So, as you can imagine, vacation care services are very much in demand from parents of school age kids and those with younger ones whose pre-schools do not operate in the school holidays.
So get in quick. The vast majority are approved for the child care benefit and rebate, so if you qualify for either or both, you will also be eligible for vacation care.
