Holroyd Community Development Association established the Centre in January 1990 and continued to sponsor the Centre until incorporation in 1993 at this time changing our name from Girraween Before and After Care Centre to The Girraween Activity Centre Incorporated. To reflect our expansion to three services in May 2008 our name was changed to “Activity Centres Incorporated”
The Service was set up to cater for the needs of working and studying parents with children aged between 5 to 12 years attending local primary schools.
The Service opened in January 1990 inside the grounds of Girraween Public School and remained there until the big move to St.Anthony’s Primary School on 15th December 1995. Known as Girraween Activity Centre.
In January 2001 we opened our second Service in the grounds of Toongabbie West Public School. Known as Toongabbie West Activity Centre.
In January 2005 we opened our third Service in the grounds of Beresford Road Public School. Known as Beresford Road Activity Centre.
In April 2016 a fourth Service was opened in the Parish Centre at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church, Greystanes. Known as Greystanes Activity Centre.
We have since opened a further four services: Pendill Hill Activity Centre, Darlington Activity Centre, Toongabbie East Activity Centre and Lapstone Activity Centre.
Our Services operate 5 days a week, from 6:30am to 9:00am for before care and 3:00pm to 6:30pm for after care, during New South Wales school terms.
We operate vacation care from a number of our services from 6:30am to 6:30pm during New South Wales School holidays.
Our Organisation is closed between Christmas and New Year and all New South Wales Public Holidays.
