Why Gowrie NSW Vacation Care?

The daily program at Gowrie NSW Erskineville is an action-packed schedule of hands-on creativity, exploration, investigation, and fun! From art & drama to science and sports, music, environmental projects and more.

Our program is built on positive interactions, enriching experiences, and provides a safe, happy and empowering environment. It is guided by ‘My Time, Our Place’, the National Curriculum Framework for School Age Care in Australia and revised each school holiday period - built on children’s interests, their input and developmental age. The program includes a mix of incursions, excursions and in-house activities.


Real social. Not screen social!

Vacation care encourages face to face group activities, like sports and team games. Interacting with other children means that they will develop skills in:

  • Communication
  • Conflict resolution
  • Empathy skills
  • Confidence and resilience

Qualified 'fun' Educators

Gowrie NSW Vacation Care programs are delivered by a team of professional educators and support staff, dedicated to providing a high quality fun and engaging program in a nurturing, stimulating and supportive environment. 
Our qualified Vacation Care educators:

  • Encourage children’s curiosity, exploration and problem solving
  • Value and respect children’s ideas and questions
  • Support children to build positive relationships with others
  • Respect the individuality of all children

Casual or full time

Your children don’t need to be students of the school to register for the Gowrie NSW - Erskineville Vacation Care Programme.
