The Bacchus Marsh Grammar School Community were surveyed to determine the demand for Before/After School and Vacation Care for students in Prep Reception to Grade 6.

There has been increasing interest and demand throughout the school community, for the school to extend the options available to parents for Out of School Hours Care.  The results of the two surveys conducted in the past six months indicated a need for more programs and longer opening hours.

Senior staff have spent significant time reviewing proposals from outside providers to establish broader access to programs for Out of School Hours Care at Bacchus Marsh Grammar.  At the recent School Council meeting, the decision to engage the YMCA to provide such services was endorsed.  Our analyses showed a broad alignment between the values of the YMCA and Bacchus Marsh Grammar.  We were impressed by their commitment to provide a service of quality whilst deepen the range of options for parents and most importantly students.

From Term 3, 2018 YMCA Ballarat will assume as Out of School Hours Care provider for Bacchus Marsh Grammar and the current Hubs Program, both Learning and Sport will cease as of Friday 22 June at 5.30pm.
