About the project

We’re building a new early learning and childcare centre at Eaglehawk North Primary School in the City of Greater Bendigo.

The Victorian Government-owned centre will provide long day care and Three- and Four-Year-Old Kindergarten programs, with space for up to 102 local children each day.

From 2029 Four-Year-Old Kindergarten will transition to Pre-Prep in the City of Greater Bendigo and funded kindergarten hours will double from 15 to 30 hours a week.

The centre will have outdoor play areas as well as a consulting room for child and family services such as allied health, and a car park.  It will also have a room for community meetings and playgroup.

Building the centre at the school will help some parents avoid the double drop-off. It makes childcare and early learning accessible and convenient for working parents and carers. It can also make the transition to school easier for some children.

This centre is one of 50 early learning and childcare centres that will share in approximately $14 billion as part of the Victorian Government’s Best Start, Best Life reform.
