About the project

We’re building a new early learning 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. These programs will be delivered across 2 long day care rooms and 2 kindergarten rooms, with space for up to 102 local children each day.

From 2029 Four-Year-Old Kindergarten will transition to Pre-PrepExternal Link and funded kindergarten hours will double from 15 to 30 hours a week.

The centre will have outdoor play areas as well as space for child and family services such as allied health. Additional spaces are still to be confirmed.

We’re locating the centre at the school to help parents avoid the double-drop off and make childcare and early learning accessible and convenient for working parents and carers.

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