Keep the kids active during the School Holidays in and around Melbourne.
As parents ourselves we understand the joys (and challenges) of school holidays. For working parents, this can be a real juggling act. Fortunately, there are so many amazing options for School Holiday Care, School Holiday Classes, and School Holiday Camps available. Although things are limited these school holidays there is plenty of safe fun to be had.
