Northern Grampians Shire Greenlight Planning and Building Permits
The Northern Grampians Shire Council is dedicated to offering high-quality inclusive early years programs and facilities throughout the shire, catering to every stage from playgroup to daycare, kindergarten, and primary school.
We recognise that the early years of a child's life are the most important for learning and development. It is during this time that the foundations for the future are laid, and where we begin moving down the path that will guide us from infancy through childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood.
Please see below for more information regarding the programs and facilities that we provide.
Kindergarten (also known as kinder) is an early education program for young children aged three to five years of age, led by an early childhood teacher. Three-year-old kindergarten has been introduced across Victoria, which means families can now access two years of government-funded kindergarten for their children before they start school.
There are many long day care options within Northern Grampians Shire. Long day care services provide quality full-day or part-timecare for children of working families and the general community.
Maternal and child health is a free service available to families with young children from birth to school entry age.
Playgroup is a great way for young children to access learning and play opportunities. Attending playgroup is also a wonderful way for parents to relax with a cuppa and make new friends.
