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.
A little bit of mess, and a whole lot of fun! Your child’s morning will begin with therapy team members Brianna and Elyse, who will lead active games as we get our bodies and brains in sync.
Kids First director Sonja and occupational therapist Jessica will also jump in with some super new science experiments that they can’t wait to share.
And if your child has a NDIS plan, rest assured – it’s easy to use their funding. Kids First’s school holiday programs are based on therapeutic goals and we keep our workshop groups small so that everyone receives the support they deserve.
