Eppalock PS now has an After School Care program in place. Our Patch operates our program which runs each afternoon from 3:15pm-6:00pm.
The program currently runs with small numbers which allows a more personal program for students involved. We hope to be able to build this program over the next few years through our partnership with Our Patch. Our Patch often offer specialist activities which the students have input into.
The After School Care program allows working families an extra level of support for drop off and pick up times, which can sometimes be challenging with the distance from our school to Bendigo where some families work each day.
After School Care will develop over the next few years depending on the needs of our community. This could include curriculum day care, vacation care and a more formalised before school care if needed. The school currently runs our own breakfast club on certain days, from 8:15am-8:50am to allow for earlier drop offs for families.
For more information about our After School Care provider please follow the link below. Our Patch will handle all communication, organisation and bookings.
Clients of the service may be eligible to receive reduced fees when they register with the Family Assistance Office for Child Care Benefit.
