Welcome to the Glenelg Shire Council

Long Day Care

Long Day Care provides a care and education program based on the National Quality Framework and Victorian Early Years Frameworks for children aged from six weeks to six years, with highly qualified and skilled educators.

The long day care program operates extended hours to provide support to families who work or study.

It provides a safe environment where children are able to grow, play, learn and develop in their early years of life.
