Kids and Youth Connect programs promote independence and goal progression for all children and young people in our care.

Holiday Programs

Our holiday programs are designed to support your child’s social and skill development through a range of fun activities within centre and through community visits and excursions.  

To ensure appropriate staffing of our holiday programs, bookings are required to be made for your child four weeks in advance.

A Program Schedule is produced a few months in advance of the holiday period to ensure you have the opportunity to discuss with your child the activities they would like to participate in. Some excursions and incursions have an additional cost.
