School holiday care

Inner West Council's school holiday care services provide a safe, supervised and fun place for your child.

Our programs provide a wide range of supervised creative, recreational and play activities that assist in the social, emotional, creative and physical development of your child.

Our staff plans the program with input from the children attending the centre. Your child will be offered a balance of structured and unstructured activities providing stimulating, enjoyable and safe play opportunities.
