After School & Vacation Care
After School Programs
CatholicCare after school programs are designed for individuals between the ages of 6 and 18 years of age. This centre-based program allows participants to get involved in a number of short games and recreational activities. Participants are also supported to complete homework if needed.
CatholicCare after school programs run from 3.00pm – 6.00pm at our different locations.
Transport to and from venues can be arranged directly with the NSW Department of Education Assisted School Travel Program. Alternatively, in some cases, transport may be arranged with us, at an extra fee.
After school programs provide a suitable alternative to the traditional weekday flexible respite services.
CatholicCare vacation care programs are designed for individuals between 6 and 18 years of age. Some CatholicCare sites may run more than one vacation care to cater for more specific age groups.
Participants attending our vacation care service are invited to participate in a number of recreational activities, both in centre and in the community as per program. The programs are season appropriate and include activities such as swimming, bush walking, attending science and live shows, music workshops, etc.
Vacation care programs traditionally run from 8.30am – 4.30pm on a daily basis (except public holidays and weekends) during school holidays. Our Lindfield Vacation Care program runs with extended hours until 6.00pm.
