School holiday activities will keep kids busy and happy

We have a whole range of activities from fun games for little kids to food adventures and cooking schools for teens these holidays.

If your child is aged 4 to 7 years and loves searching for pirate treasure, take a look at the CIMT intensive program for children who have hemiplegic or monoplegic cerebral palsy.

The program is designed so your little one will learn to better perform everyday tasks and activities such as dressing, playing games and using cutlery with their affected arm.

Its full name is Constraint Induced Movement Therapy and it’s based on the latest research around neural plasticity of the brain but your young pirate won’t realise this. They’ll just be delighted to be playing games with a Treasure Island theme.

“It was fantastic,” says Maria, the mother of five-year-old Sophie, who completed the program recently. “She used her hand more and also learnt to work in a group and wait her turn.”

For more information on CIMT or to register you interest in future programs go here.

We are also running Conductive Education for primary school kids this school holidays.

Teens learn independence

There’s a food adventure and a cooking school awaiting teens aged between 13 and 17 years. On the food adventure they will take public transport to a restaurant they choose and eat together while learning skills such as budgeting and travelling independently.

There are also cooking programs for 13 to 17 year olds at Allambie and Prairiewood aimed at increasing independence and confidence in the kitchen.

For the 14 to 24 age group, a Supersize Career Lab in the Sydney CBD will help them discover how to best use their skills and passions to create a career.

Explore our range of spring holiday programs for 13 to 25 year olds here.
