After School Care

The Bendigo YMCA operates an After School Care Program at St. Francis of the Fields Primary School. The program operates every school day for children aged 5-12 years. We also provide Care on days of school closure if there are enough children who require the service. For information, bookings and cancellations please contact Bendigo YMCA on 5445 8300.


Venue of After School Care 

  • The After School Care at St. Francis runs from our School Community Centre.

 Application Forms

  • Application Forms are available from the YMCA.

 Hours of After School Care

  • After School Care times: 3.20pm - 6.00pm
  • Pupil Free Day Care times: 8.00am - 6.00pm


  • After school activities are less structured than those offered during the Pupil Free Days, to allow children to wind down after the school day.
  • The program's activities are designed to meet the interests of children aged 5-12 years. Children are offered the opportunity to participate in leisure and recreation activities including art, craft, games, drama, sport and physical activities, and cooking. Children also have some "down time" where they can watch television and movies on large screen.
  • Providing quality care and enjoyment for the children whilst they are in our care.
