Primary school holiday program

Council operates a school holiday program for primary school children aged between 5 and 12 years old whose parents live, work or study in Moreland.

The program offers a variety of in-house activities, including games, crafts and sports, and excursions.

Council's primary school holiday program operates under the Commonwealth Government's Child Care Subsidy Scheme.

It follows the staffing qualifications, ratios, and building requirements of the National Quality Framework for Outside School Hours Services and My Time Our Place.
