Philosophy

Vietnamese Cultural Diversity Vacation Care is a welcoming and an enjoyable place for children to come whilst their parents work, study or undertake other activities. The children have the opportunity to engage in a wide range of stimulating, entertaining and culturally inclusive activities.

The staff provide a consistently caring environment incorporating a fun program of activities for the children.

Our aims and objectives for children are:

  • Social and emotional – to assist babies and older children to develop self esteem and self confidence.
  • Cognitive – to assist intellectual development, problem solving, decision making and reasoning in children of all ages.
  • Language and creativity – to assist children to develop communication skills and have the opportunity to express themselves through music and art.
  • Physical including fine and gross motor skillsto assist in small muscle control, hand to eye coordination and pre-writing skills. Gross motor development will enhance large muscle body control and spatial awareness.
