The Kids First’s vacation programs are school holiday workshops with a difference!
Our dedicated team of therapists and teachers lead three-hour-long programs that offer valuable opportunities for kids with unique needs to build confidence while learning and practicing skills that they need to succeed in their primary school classroom, playground, and life.
In our familiar, caring environment, kids of all abilities feel welcome, known and accepted…. and because of this, they overcome their challenges and are able to THRIVE instead of just ‘cope’
Kids First’s experienced team of child psychologists, speech therapists, teachers and OTs offer supported school holiday workshops that help kids to reach their therapeutic goals and share social experiences with like-minded peers.
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.

We want your child to have a fabulous time at our School Holiday Workshops, and give your child every chance to feel comfortable at Kids First.
If your son or daughter has not visited us before, we ask that you make 30 minutes available for a phone consultation wth a member of our clinical team so that we can learn about your child’s background and needs.
Every school holidays my child asks ‘Can I go to Kids First?’ It’s such a relief to know that my special boy will have fun with like-minded kids and professionals who know how to support him. He’s absolutely loved every school holiday workshop he’s ever attended at Kids First.
Kids First has always felt like visiting family, Sonja and the team are welcoming, friendly and a wealth of information and support.
