Fun for 5-15 year olds, with free days for teachers' kids
Team Holiday credits their success in part to the fact that they only do Holiday Programs; they don't provide before and after school care like many other providers. "This allows us to research and customise our holiday programs more carefully. It also allows us to recruit a higher proportion of fully qualified emergency teachers to our programs, who otherwise don't have work."
Team Holiday was founded by Sam Hoath, a primary school teacher who was passionate about providing quality learning experiences that were engaging, entertaining, exciting and educational. Fully approved for all government rebates (CCB and CCR) for all eligible families, Team Holiday is the only Outside Hours service provider that specialises in holiday programs (they don't provide before and after school care during the school year) and are therefore able to focus for 10 weeks during school term to develop the best holiday experiences possible for participants.
Activities may include giant slip'n'slides, cooking and ice cream making days, wacky science experiments, sports clinics, arts and crafts, incursion days such as Laserforce games, bubble-soccer or reptile encounters, just to name a few. Excursions are also a part of the fun (additional fees relative to activity booked): indoor trampolining, rock-climbing centres, zoos, adventure parks, beaches, cinemas and mazes, ice-rinks, museums, comedy festivals and more fun awaits.
