Holiday Care Program

2022 Holiday Care Program

The GEKA Holiday Care Program is offered to children aged between 3 to 5 years, living within Glen Eira, Bayside, Kingston, Monash, and the surrounding communities. We are open during the term 2 and term 3 holidays (excluding public holidays), for a total of 4 weeks a year.

Qualified educators operate our program, and we offer a variety of engaging activities from visual art, sports, music and movement, environmental education, cooking experiences and flexible indoor/outdoor play.

While we operate from one or two GEKA Kindergartens (depending on the demand), we have found that children ease into the program with little concern being at a different kindergarten to usual. This is largely due to a GEKA services having a consistent ‘homely’ feel and commitment to high quality resources, that are familiar to children. Our educators are sensitive to the transition for children from neighbouring services and provide an individualised orientation program for those that need time to settle.

Families have appreciated being able to access a high-quality educational program during the term breaks, as it not only provides the care needed, but also a continuity in learning for their child. GEKA families also have the added benefit of completing a simple enrolment of days for the program, with all enrolment details and relevant medical information, being transferred from their permanent GEKA kindergarten to the holiday care program.
As the program continues to gain popularity, we will look to offer the program at more GEKA services, so we can continue to meet the needs of the community.

Where: Our program will be held at GEKA McKinnon Kindergarten between the hours of 8.30am to 4.30pm and is open to all children aged 3 to 5.

Cost: $80 per day

Please note this is a GEKA funded program and therefore no CCR is available.

What to bring:

  • A packed lunch, snacks (no nut products please) and water
  • A hat and sunscreen
  • If your child has an Medical Action Plan which lists medication/s, please ensure you bring the medication with you (ensure the medication is NOT expired). If your child has medication stored at another GEKA service, this medication will not be supplied to the Holiday Care Program and you will be required to bring supplementary medication to the program.

The GEKA Holiday Care Handbook containing more details about the program, will be emailed to you directly after your booking has been confirmed.

*Please note that scheduled programs may be subject to change depending on Victorian public holidays and based on the number of children enrolled in the program.
