Parents will have greater flexibility when before-school care starts at Warrnambool Primary School in 2020.
Two other Warrnambool-based schools are considering adopting the program.
Warrnambool Primary School parent Catherine Fitzgerald said she was looking forward to working more regular hours when the on-campus program began.
"This new program will give us before and after-school care, curriculum day programs as well as school holiday programs," she said.
"Currently for the kids to go to after-school care they have to take two buses to get there, and there is no before school.
"You can't drop them off at school before 8.30am and then school finishes at 3.20pm, so you are limited in your work hours. This program is going to be amazing."
Ms Fitzgerald worked full-time prior to her son Jett, now 7, starting at school.
She now limits her work hours to two casual positions to maintain flexibility around school times.
Ms Fitzgerald said she had spoken to a number of other parents who had limited support options to assist with out-of-school care.
"There are lots of people like me who aren't from around here and don't have the family support," she said.
"We can't get Nanna to pick them up."
Warrnambool Primary School assistant principal Dean Clements said a large number of parents had asked for a before-and-after school care program to be run at the school.
"There is no before-school care at all in Warrnambool at the moment," he said.
Mr Clements said access to the Warrnambool City Council-run after-school care program was challenging because of the transport arrangements.
"They have to catch a bus to Warrnambool College, then transfer to another bus to after-school care. It's a lot for young students," he said.
The new program, run by private provider TheirCare, will offer before-school care from 7.30am and after-school care until 6pm, plus school holiday and curriculum-day care programs.
Participation will be limited to students enrolled at Warrnambool Primary School.
