Kindergarten and OSHC Program Closures

The health and wellbeing of all participants in our services, our staff and communities is paramount. In line with the direction from the Victorian Government in response to the COVID-19 situation, Early Education Services (Kindergartens) managed by YMCA Early Years Management and our Before and After School Care Programs will be closed as of end of session today – Monday 23rd March, effectively beginning the holidays early.

If your child is enrolled in one of our 3 year old or 4 year old programs or at one of Y Ballarat’s Before School or After School Programs in Ballarat, Ararat, Stawell and Portland; this means that your child will not be attending Kindergarten or an OSHC program for the rest of this week.

As this is an evolving situation, we are awaiting further direction and advice from the Government on support for families and organisations.

We anticipate that services will re-open on Tuesday 14th April 2020, unless advised otherwise by the state government. We are monitoring the situation closely and will keep you updated on any further announcements and developments.
