Q & A

You may find it useful to the know the answers of these common questions.

Q1  Would my child be okay to attend Holiday Club; he will be five years old but not yet school year one until several more months?
A1  We do stipulate from school year one, but as for all our sessions this is only a guide because all children are different. At this age it can be fine, the child can be emotionally, socially and physically developed enough to be with us, but sometimes it’s not appropriate. The maximum coach ratio we aim for is 12:1 at Holiday Club which is considerably more than our pre-school age Footy Cubs (6:1). Our Foundation coaches are best to guide you on whether your child could cope for all or half a day with this level of attention. Please have a chat with them before you book.
