Officially opened in August 1986, our centre is a not for profit community managed centre for children 4 months to school age. We run a 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten program and offer long day care with a capacity of 55. We are managed by a voluntary parent committee with an employed Centre Director who manages day to day operations.
We pride ourselves on the exemplary standard of care and education we offer to the community with the support of Boroondara Council, Government agencies (State and Federal) and the local community to ensure we maintain our high level of care and education in line with our philosophy and legislative requirements.
Our centre has been accredited as part of the Federal Government’s Quality and Improvement System, which allows the centre to access Commonwealth Childcare Assistance. The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) overseas this process and monitors the implementation of the National Quality Standards and Regulations.
All parent contributions are highly valued. We encourage parents to take an active role in developing the Centre either by joining the Committee of Management, Sub-Committees and/or attending working bees. There are a range of opportunities to socialise with other families at various functions throughout the year, which fosters a sense of community between children, parents, educators and employees.
