TIMES might be different, but what hasn't changed is the smiles and laughs being delivered at Leeton Out of School Care.
It has been an unusual time for both parents and students these school holidays thanks to the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, but if there's one constant, it's fun even during hard times.
These school holidays, attendees at Leeton Out of School Care have had to adapt to some new changes, but they have done so with no complaints.
Regular hand washing was always a staple at the program, as was providing hand sanitizer, but the centre has purchased more and the hygiene practices are being adhered to even more regularly.
Children are also sitting apart during eating or activity times as part of social distancing rules and, as part of these measures, they have also received their own special pack during the holidays that come complete with activity sheets to undertake each day.
Lauren Nelson from Leeton Out of School Care said there were some other noticeable changes.
"Our numbers aren't like previous holidays, we normally have between 30 to 50 children each day," she said.
"Due to the pandemic and parents working from home currently we have between 10 to 20 children.
"These holidays we aren't doing any excursions, so had to think outside the box to keep the children busy and entertained."
This has included everything from Easter craft and cooking, sport activities, an Amazing Race, pizza and movies to a scavenger hunt, market day, talent show and disco.
"The children have adapted fairly easily and well," Ms Nelson said.
"Yes, they do miss their regular routine and seeing their friends/family, but with what they have been faced with, I think they are doing great and should give themselves a pat on the back.
"I love watching the children grow, learn and become independent. I also love our service is helping our essential service workers in a time of need. We may all be going through major changes, but our team is working together great."
The service will also re-open as After School Care for term two and has welcomed back co-ordinator Keira McCallum from maternity leave.
"I would also like to thank all our families during the pandemic, you have all done so well with the adjustment and the unknown," Ms Nelson said.
The centre continues to be located on the grounds of Parkview Public School.
