Why Gowrie Ryde Vacation Care?

Are you tired of hearing ‘I’m bored’ each school holidays? Or wrangling friends and family to mind your children while you work?

A good quality vacation care program benefits both children and parents. It provides stability and entertainment, giving parents space and the opportunity to breathe. And work.

Gowrie’s Ryde Vacation Care daily program offers an action-packed schedule of hands-on creativity, exploration, investigation, and fun! From art & drama to science and sports, music, environmental projects and more.

We also have Vacation Care / Holiday Programs at the following centres in the Ryde surrounds.

Our program is built on positive interactions, enriching experiences, and provides a safe, happy and empowering environment. It is guided by ‘My Time, Our Place’, the National Curriculum Framework for School Age Care in Australia and revised each school holiday period – built on children’s interests, their input and developmental age. The program includes a mix of incursions, excursions and in-house activities.

Here is the program for the Summer School Holidays.

Real social. Not screen social!

  • empathy skills
  • confidence and resilience.
