School holiday care

Programs are supervised by qualified staff and include a range of age-specific activities. School holiday care programs administer child care subsidy, so if you are eligible you may receive financial assistance.

These Council-owned facilities run school holiday programs.

In the lead-up to each school holiday period, we also publish a list of upcoming school holiday activities.


Council manages the Playhouses in Eltham and Panton Hill. The registered services comply with the Children’s Services Act 1996 and the Children’s Services Regulations 2010.
