About Our Holiday Care Programs

What to expect when your child attends Holiday Care

Our activities are based on the current framework for primary aged children called ‘My Time, Our Place’ which encourages our managers to plan experiences around the individual needs and interests of each child.

Our activities involve craft, cooking, sport activities, indoor/outdoor play, community engaged visits and much more.

We strive to develop the social and emotional capacity and lifelong skills in children, that will give them an advantage amongst their peers.

What our parents say about us

To prove the value of what we have to offer to you and your children, why not let your happy parents do the talking?

I have been so happy with the care given to my daughter at Big Childcare Tarneit Rise. Whenever I pick her up, she is always so engaged in an activity and even gets upset if I pick her up too early. I was worried at the beginning of the year, as she is little and I knew the days would be long, but Parul, Poonam, Jostyna, Doris and many of the other staff have made the transition so easy and exciting for her. She just loves it!


Tarneit Rise Parent

We have recently joined the Big Childcare family and the kids are loving it! Maddie is wonderful and has made each of them feel welcome and safe, so much so they are asking to go even when they don't need to. Thanks Maddie and the team at Holy Trinity for providing such a caring and engaging space!


Holy Trinity Parent

Amazing place and educators. The fact the our daughter is more than happy to run away from us when dropping her off and sad to leave the centre towards the end of the day says a lot abt the place.
