YWCA CANBERRA

School holiday programs

Providing care and education for your child
in the heart of the community

Our school holiday programs offer children a variety of fun, exciting and enjoyable experiences and activities. The structure of the programs is similar each day and allows the flexibility to accommodate children’s needs and interests.

The school holiday programs endeavour to develop children’s independence, self-help skills and self-esteem. These aims are achieved by allowing children to make choices and contribute to the activities offered at the program.

All of our school holiday programs are approved for Child Care Subsidy.
