Our Vacation Care was the first in Newcastle along side our sister centre Merewether Heights OOSH to provide the first Big Kids Club for children in Year 5 at school and up to Year 7 in high school. On certain days when the other children are doing certain activities the big kids club go on special excursions designed just for them or even have special experiences allocated to just the older group. These usually however always incur additional charges to every day fees.
