ROOSH’s Vacation Care holiday program is a great way to spend the holidays! Each program includes suggestions from children, parents, and our Educators.

Our programs run throughout most of the Northcross Christian School holiday breaks, closing only for a couple of weeks over Christmas and the New Year.

ROOSH will be open from 7:30am to 6pm each day, excluding public holidays.

LAST-MINUTE CHANGES

On occasions, due to circumstances outside the control of ROOSH, last minutes changes may need to be made to the program. This may be that an excursion or incursion is cancelled or an advertised activity does not take place. While ROOSH reserves the right to alter the program without prior notification, we will endeavour to arrange an alternate activity of equal value where possible.
