School holiday fun for tweens and teens

Book your child’s place


Is your child too old for vacation care, but not quite ready to be home alone during the school holidays?

Kids First has the answer.

Every school holiday, Kids First’s energetic team of child psychologists, speech therapists, OTs, and teachers offers programs that help kids to reach their therapeutic goals, master new skills, and connect with like-minded peers.

While 11 to 15 year old is enjoying cooking, art, craft, and other creative activities, they’ll be having so much fun they won’t even realise they’re learning.

Our School Holiday Workshops for Teens are best suited to children who attend mainstream schools and are in Years 6 to 9.

Group sizes are limited and NDIS-funded children are welcome.

Please see the booking form at the bottom of this page for available dates, times, and conditions.

Learning cleverly disguised as fun

Teens Cooking Club

What 11 to 15-year-old doesn’t love food?

Together with experienced members of our clinical team, your child will build confidence, practice their social skills and learn life skills as they plan, prepare, and create delicious snacks and a tasty meal. We’ll then get together as a group to eat and enjoy the lunch that we’ve made.

This is skills-based program focuses on skills like:

  • Functional Independence
  • Following procedures
  • Social skills
  • Resilience
  • Flexible thinking
  • Self care
  • Fine motor coordination
  • Organisation

Opportunities to connect with other kids

Teens Art Club

Would your sensitive son or daughter enjoy some creativity during these school holidays?

Your child may already be an avid artist, but no experience is necessary for our Teens Art Club, which is led by Kids First’s talented speech pathologist, Hannah.

In a calm and encouraging environment, your child will have the freedom to explore their thoughts and feelings, while also building social skills and confidence in the company of peers.

This is skills-based program focuses on skills like:

  • Self expression
  • Appreciation of difference
  • Task perseverance
  • Self insight
  • Social skills
  • Senosry regulation
  • Visual storytelling
  • anxiety management
