School Holiday Program

Our Wonthaggi holiday program provides an opportunity for your child to learn from new experiences through a fun mix of activities, while making 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 meeting cute animals, rocking out at a music workshop, or playing the latest video games with your friends. We do regular excursions too, such as to Wonthaggi Arts Centre.

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 holiday 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 on this page 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.
