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 confirm your child’s place, we ask families to pay a refundable enrolment bond. The bond is calculated by the number of days your child attends x 4 weeks. The bond is held during your child's enrolment, and is refunded or offset against the last month's fees, when you give us four weeks notice in writing that your child is leaving La Grande Récré. Cancelling permanent bookings should be done in writing, with 4 weeks’ notice.

Child Care Subsidy:

La Grande Récré is an approved child care provider. Eligible parents may utilise the Federal Government’s Child Care Subsidy (CCS) scheme for our services. In order for us to apply CCS 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 CCS, please contact the Family Assistance Office on 13 61 50.
