Harvest Home Primary

Before and After School Care

Every day should start and end with a smile! That's why we support busy Epping North families with high quality care before and after school hours.

Our programs include a range of exciting and educational activities suitable for children between five and 12 years old. Activities could include arts and crafts, board games and puzzles, cooking and expressive arts, sport and ball games and much more. Your child will also be able to socialise with other children and make new friends.

We even provide a healthy and delicious breakfast in the morning and nutritious snacks after school, so you have one less thing to worry about!

We also offer a Pupil Free Day program throughout the school year, depending on booking numbers.

School Holiday Program

Our Epping holiday program provides an opportunity for your child to learn from new experiences through a fun mix of activities, while making new friends along the way.

We offer a wide variety of interest-based in-house activities, themed incursions and exciting excursions. Our holiday programs are run by experienced Educators who help your child become more confident and independent.

Activities could include learning to roller skate, trying out the latest video games during a visit from expert gamers, or winning gold at our very own Olympics! We've even taken children on fun excursions to play mini golf and laser tag.

Keep an eye out for our upcoming program – we'll share the schedule on this page about four weeks before the school holidays start.

Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

Our programs qualify for the Federal Government's Child Care Subsidy (CCS). CCS helps eligible families access approved and registered child care providers by partially subsidising the cost of daily fees.

The 'Fee' price listed in the table above is the full permanent or casual daily fee for each program without any CCS entitlements.

*The 'You pay as little as' price is an example of how little you could pay if you qualify for the maximum CCS percentage (90%) as provided by the Federal Government. We've calculated this price to allow for the 5% withheld by Services Australia to reduce the chances of an overpayment.

When our holiday programs are open for bookings, you'll be able to see the prices for each activity on this page. These prices are the daily price and do not include any CCS you may be entitled to, which could significantly reduce your out of pocket expense.

Learn more about Child Care Subsidy or visit the Service Australia website for more information. We also recommend using this CCS calculator to estimate your new subsidy payments. 

Prices

The table below lists the current daily fee for our in house school holiday program activity days at Harvest Home Primary. This price came into effect from Monday 7 August 2023. Prices for the excursions will be available for each school holiday program when it is released approximately 4 weeks prior to the start of the holidays.

Each activity day incurs a separate cost that is confirmed prior to each holidays when bookings are opened.

Program tables are available to view under the ‘Next program’ section, prior to the start of each school holiday. These detail the daily activities types and associated fees.

Fees listed on program tables are not inclusive of any Child Care Subsidy (CCS) entitlements, which may reduce your out-of-pocket expense.

Our holiday programs qualify for the Child Care Subsidy.
