In line with the latest Victorian State Government health advice, from Friday 19 November, anyone attending our facilities that is 18 years or older must be fully vaccinated to attend our facility unless a medical exception applies. This applies to children in our program and any siblings that attend the centre.

Proof of vaccination will be required upon entry. Find out how you can get your COVID-19 digital certificate here. Immunisation History Statements are also acceptable proof.

If your child’s vaccination status impacts your participation, please contact us to discuss your personal return plan.
A few additional changes for your next visit include:

  • Density limits will no longer apply.
