Changes to Children's Services start dates

8 January 2020

Due to the impacts of the bushfires in our local area, Bega Valley Shire Council’s Children’s Services have needed to revise start dates for this year, with the safety of all children, families and staff remaining our focus.

Staff members are currently busy making sure each centre is safe, clean and ready to welcome children back as soon as possible.

Please note the following important information regarding our various centres:

  • Due to existing fire risk in the Eden area and the amount of smoke and ash at the centre, the start date for programs has been delayed.
  • The centre is currently closed until further notice.
  • Staff members are undertaking further assessments and preparations at the centre and will provide further advice to families as soon as possible.


  • No changes to start dates.
