The aim of the Yackandandah Kindergarten After Kinder Care (AKC) Program is to provide a high- quality education and care program which meets the recreational, social and developmental needs of 4yo children within the kindergarten’s community.
THE PROGRAM IS OFFERED TO 4YO CHILDREN and aims to provide children with the opportunity to interact and co-operate in a safe environment with their peers and to provide a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere in which children can participate in activities relevant to their needs/interests.
The Program objectives and strategies can be found in the ‘Yackandandah Kindergarten Policy Folder’. Various policies are referred to within this handbook; however, parents/guardians are invited to view the Policy Document for a complete listing of the Policies pertaining to the operation of the Kinder and its programs. Copies of our Policy Documents are available from the Kinder Office.

AKC fees will not be refunded in the case of pupil-free [term] days, public holiday, Code RED Fire Danger Days or non-use of the booked days. Notice of absence on the day/days of booked care is required by 8.00am on the booked care day, so as to allow for
any casual bookings which may be requested.
Permanent Bookings must be advised each term – they do not automatically roll over to the following term.
Under a permanent booking arrangement, fees are due to be paid per term, in advance to YPS.
Casual bookings are available upon request and will be accepted where there is a vacant position for the day/session. Advance request of casual bookings is recommended where possible. Where a casual booking request is made on the day required, there is a possibility that a place may not be available. Casual bookings are subject to a $10 cancellation fee if inadequate notice of cancellation is given ie: advice of cancellation is not received by phone or email by 8.30am.
Under a casual booking arrangement, fees must be paid in cash on the day of the booking; either at the time of drop-off into the normal 4yo Program or upon collection of your child from the AKC.
