After School Care Beginning Term 3 2021


 

Eppalock PS is excited to announce that we will have an After School Care program beginning at the start of term 3 2021.  This is possible through the recent Government grant funding and the hard work of our School Council, school community and partnership with Our Patch.

 

The After School Care program will allow 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 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.
