Vacation Care

Art and craft, drama, cooking, sport, incursions and excursions by an approved child care provider.

Macquarie University Vacation Care provides a fun and safe recreational program for up to 55 primary school aged children per day during the school holidays.

The program, founded on the National Quality Framework My Time Our Place, changes each holiday period, and is based on our educators' understanding of the interests and developmental levels of school-aged children. Activities vary according to the age of the child.

When possible, the children also provide input into daily activities, making suggestions for both the current and future programs.

Bookings open at least four weeks before the holidays - we encourage families to register early to secure a place.

April 2018 availability: there is limited availability at Vacation Care. Places may still be available on Friday 20 April and Monday 30 April. Please email us to confirm at
