Some exciting changes are coming to the ELC in 2018.

We are pleased to be able to share further details about the long-day care programs that will be available in the ELC from 2018. At BGS, we know how important the early years are. Children learn more during these years than at any other time in their lives. These programs will offer high-quality care outside kindergarten hours. You can choose from a number of options detailed below. 

Join the upcoming ELC Discovery Tour on Wednesday 25 October 2017 at 9:00 am to find out more.

As Brighton Grammar ELC will be licenced as an approved long-day care centre and kindergarten, parents can claim the Child Care Rebate and Child Care Benefit, including for the four-year-old kinder program. To be eligible for one or both types of fee assistance, families must meet certain eligibility criteria as determined by the Federal Government. To register and/or ascertain eligibility, contact Centrelink online or on 13 61 50.

What’s included in the long-day model? 

  • A formal kindergarten program delivered by qualified and specialist early childhood educators.
  • A centre that is staffed from 7.30am (students are welcome to arrive anytime from 7.30am) until 6pm, five days a week, offering before- and after-kinder programs in term time.
  • A continental breakfast and delicious after-school snacks. (Students bring their own morning tea and lunch.)
  • A comprehensive activities program, both inside and outside, especially suited to preschool-aged boys. 

Important information about the 48-week option 

  • The formal kindergarten program (ELC 3: 9am–2.30pm; ELC 4: 8.45am–2.45pm) runs only during school term time.
  • Outside of kindergarten times and during school holidays, sessions are staffed by qualified and certified child care staff (who are different to the kindergarten staff).
  • The ELC holiday program is only available to BGS students.
  • All programs are based in the ELC.

The centre is closed during the Christmas/New Year period and on public holidays.
