The Vacation Care program runs at the YWCA Hunter throughout the school holidays. It is an innovative, FUN packed program that ensures the children of working parents have a thrilling and enriching school holiday experience. Funded and accredited under the NSW Dept of Education Vacation Care Support funding, the program caters for parents working in the inner city and local children alike.
Through excursions, incursions and in-house theme days the children create, use their imaginations and physically challenge themselves while learning new skills and having fun. All vacation care activities are delivered through many fun, community aware and interesting themes set under the ‘My Time Our Place’ government guidelines. Children must be enrolled at school to be able to attend.
YWCA Hunter is also an accredited childcare provider so parents can claim the Child Care Subsidy towards their vacation care fees.
