What do we offer?

Long Day Care operates across the catchment at Murrayville (Wednesday & Friday), Underbool (Tuesday & Thursday), Sea Lake (Monday to Friday) and Ouyen (Monday to Friday). 

Our Long Day Care programs are led by qualified Educators who plan and implement educational programs that are specifically tailored to the needs, interests and developmental milestones of young children aged 0 – 5. 

Children are encouraged to learn and explore through play based learning, which is guided by the National Quality Standards and Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. 


A set fee per hour for families is charged to access the service.  Families are encouraged to apply through MyGov for the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) and/or Additional Child Care Subsidy (ACCS).  The CCS and ACCS is paid to MTHCS and passed on to parents/guardians in the form of a fee reduction. The fee reduction is based on combined family income and activity test that families are required to complete through their MyGov account. Information on our fees is available in the Early Years Parent Handbook.
