Our Services

La Grande Récré is unique in Victoria. We offer :

  • a French preschool program (2-5 years old)
  • Holiday programs (up to 12 years old)
  • a stimulating and fun environment

Our centre is open from 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday (except public holidays) 49 weeks a year.


Attendance patterns may be between one and five days. Permanent bookings ensure that your child always has a place on the days that you specify. To secure a permanent booking we require a bond equivalent to two weeks' fees after CCB entitlements. The bond is held until your child leaves La Grande Récré permanently, at which time it is refunded or may be used to pay for your child’s final 2 weeks. Cancelling permanent bookings should be done in writing, with 30 days’ notice.

Child Care Benefit/Rebate:

La Grande Récré is an approved child care provider. Eligible parents may utilise the Federal Government’s Child Care Benefit and/or Child Care Rebate schemes for our services. In order for us to apply CCB and/or CCR to your account, you MUST provide us with both your child’s Date of Birth and CRN (Customer Reference Number) and the corresponding parent’s date of birth and CRN number. If you are not registered for CCB/CCR, please contact the Family Assistance Office on 13 61 50.
