The School Holiday Programs is an opportunity for your child to grow and learn from new experiences. Our holiday programs are created with a great balance of fun, adventure and interest-based activities (through excursions and incursions), helping kids become more confident and independent individuals.

 
If your child is aged between 5 – 12 years old and enrolled in primary school for 2018, they will love our school holiday program!

The April Vacation Care Program for Macleod Recreation & Fitness Centre will be open for bookings on Monday 4th March 2019.

The program will be running from Monday 8th April – Thursday 18th April 2019.

Notice: Important Information about the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) (updated 14 March 2019)

To receive the new CCS, you will need to give Centrelink extra information using your Centrelink online account through myGov.

Many families are currently unaware that Centrelink automatically ceases any Child Care Subsidy (CCS) for families who have not attended for 8 weeks.

What does this mean for me?

If you are only using our program during school holiday periods, your bookings are more than 8 weeks apart. This means your CCS will have stopped and won’t automatically apply to your account for the upcoming program.

What do you need to do?

To make it easy for you, and to ensure there will be no surprises when you receive your statement, there are a few steps you need to complete to re-activate your CCS:
• Book at least one day in the program before the 1st of April (so we know that you are attending again).
• Let us know at the program that you completed this step so we can update your account.
• After the 1st April log into your MyGov account and confirm your enrolment.
Step-by-step instructions on how to do this are here
When you have completed this step, let us know and we will be able to apply your subsidy.

Why can’t I do it straight away?

If you try to confirm your enrolment before the 1st of April, Centrelink will cease your CCS again due to non-attendance at the program and we will need to repeat the process again.

We apologise for adding things to your to-do list, but we want to ensure that by the time statements come out and your account is debited, CCS is applying as it should.
