Our program is open from 7:30am – 5:30pm each weekday on the school holidays. Each day we meet in the hall at De La Salle College (High St, Malvern), our Tweens can be dropped of any time from 7:30, everyone needs to be there by 9am because that’s when our adventure for the day begins. At 9am we all get into our mini bus and head off on an excursion for the day, Tweens are responsible for their own lunch and snacks, usually there will be an opportunity to buy them while we’re out so they can choose to bring money or a packed lunch from home. We’re all about nurturing that development of independence that Tweens crave.
We offer great ratios of staff to Tweens, there’s always 2 staff and a maximum of 10 Tweens, but we have a focus on independence and fun so while we are there to ensure the safety of your Tweens we aim to come across more like a laid back friend who helps them have an enjoyable, adventure filled school holiday break.
Each day we will return to the school hall at around 4pm (see program details for more specific information) and chill out until 5:30 when we close. There is an option for parental permission to be given for our Tweens to make their own way home once we have returned, otherwise they stay with us until they can be picked up and signed out.
Who are we? We are two dedicated educators who have many years experience working with kids. Lizzie is a qualified primary school teacher who has taught a variety of year levels as well as working in before and after school care and holiday programs for over 10 years. Janelle has a number of years working for a variety of local councils in their family, youth and children’s services, early childhood as well as school aged care. They both have a particular interest in engaging older children after experiencing the boredom and frustration the kids of this age feel when placed in care.
There are a number of other holiday programs out there, including ones for teens but our difference is that we offer the qualifications, and hours of your regular primary school holiday program with the fun and adventure of the local council teen holiday programs, the best of both worlds you might say!
