Croydon Activities Centre, 111 Edwin St North, Croydon.

Activity Time
The program will usually run from 9am to 4pm daily. It is best to arrive between 9am and 9:30am in order to make the most of the day and not delay the activity for others.

Early Start and Late Finish
Needs must be advised at the time of booking. Requests are subject to availability and late finish is from 4 pm to 6 pm.

Cancellations
Please let us know at least 24 hours before the allocated activity if your child is unable to attend as planned. This way we can offer a spot to someone on the waiting list. If a cancellation is received with less than 24 hours’ notice, the activity fee will not be refunded.

Please bring
Companion card, Opal card, Morning tea, lunch and drink, unless otherwise advised in the program.

Personal property
Please ensure that all of your child’s property is clearly marked with their name. We recommend you  include a change of clothes in your child’s bag in case of emergencies.

Companion Cards
If your child has a companion card, please bring it on the day.

Opal Cards
All activities advertised will be using public transport to reach their destinations, therefore it is necessary to bring an Opal card on each day your child attends.

Medication
Medication must be provided in a Webster Pack with a completed and signed Medication Chart every time your child attends. Failure to provide medication in this manner may preclude their attendance on the day.

No Nuts
Please be mindful that our program is a nut-free environment as some participants have allergies.
