Vacation Care

Vacation Care Flyer

The Vacation Care program runs at the YWCA Centre throughout the school holidays. The program offers affordable and fun holiday activities for the children of parents living or working in the Newcastle inner city region. Children must be enrolled at school and aged 5-12 years.

Cost is $50 per child per day (plus additional costs such as excursion/incursion fees). We are funded through DEC with parents eligible for the Government’s Child Care Rebate and/or Child Care Benefit available. Contact Centrelink for information regarding reduced fees and CRN number prior to returning your Booking forms.

The January holiday program will be full of fun, exciting and varied activities for the school holidays.
