Outside of School Hours Care

Byron Shire Council offers Outside of School Hours Care for school aged children in the form of Vacation Care and After School Care.

Vacation Care

Vacation Care operates during the school holidays to provide fun and care for children aged 5-12 years. Children must have commenced school (or be enrolled to attend school) in order to attend.

The service operates Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) from 8.00am – 6.00pm and is run in Brunswick Heads, Byron Bay and Mullumbimby.

Programming is based on different stages of development and we aim to provide a balanced program containing structured and unstructured activities. Excursions are compulsory, and programs are available in the weeks preceding each holiday period.

Enquiries can be made by contacting the administration coordinator (Monday and Tuesday and every 2nd Wednesday 8.30am to 4.30pm).
