Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club welcomes parents and children for the most important meal of the day, laying the foundations for better concentration and participation at school.

At the Breakfast Club children enjoy a nourishing meal every weekday before school and can take part in fun learning activities. 

The activities they enjoy with the program’s team of dedicated volunteers include music, games, art and craft, building blocks and books.

Children also learn about a good diet and develop sound routines that improve school attendance and involvement.

Through the Breakfast Club families also make connections with health, education and community services.

The breakfast menu includes vegetarian and halal meals.

When and where?

The program is offered weekdays before school, from 7.30am to 8.45am at the Connie Benn Centre, 160 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy.
