Vacation Care

St Andrew's School's Early Learning Centre (ELC) provides a Vacation Care Program for our ELC children, as well as children in Reception, Year 1, and Year 2. There are limited places available.

Our Vacation Care Program allows children to be cared for in a friendly, familiar and supportive environment during the holiday time. Staff are predominantly teachers from the ELC who have built up strong and trusting relationships with the children over one, or many years, as they progress through St Andrew's School.
