With the next school holidays fast approaching, families are looking for ways to entertain the kids during term break.

Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler OAM said children are a big part of the Penrith Community and school holidays often present a dilemma for parents and carers working or studying.

“Our long day Vacation Care programs provide an ideal solution and are available to all school aged children from Kindergarten to Year 6. We have six convenient locations including Cranebrook, Emu Plains, Erskine Park, Glenmore Park, St Clair and Werrington”, said Cr Fowler.

“Each one of our Vacation Care centres provide a safe, secure and inclusive environment for all children with highly qualified staff who really make a difference. In fact, all our centres meet or exceed the standards set by the National Quality Framework”, said Cr Fowler.

“In addition to Vacation Care we offer Long Day Care, Out of School Care and Pre School services across 26 locations. All our Centres are not for profit so proceeds are invested back into your child’s education”, Cr Fowler concluded.
