Vacation Care

Vacation Care

Vacation care is available during the school holidays in April, July and October.  It is also available for the last 2 weeks in January.

Hours are from 7:00am-6:00pm each day (excluding public holidays).

We offer vacation care for Melrose Park PS students and the wider community.

Our vacation care program is packed with theme days, activities and incursions. The program aims to keep your children entertained during the holidays, and to ensure they are having lots of fun with their friends, new and old.
