Child Care

A learning, caring environment

Community Children centres in Essendon and Moonee Ponds provide the highest levels of child care and kindergarten, all with ‘exceeding ratings’ the highest rating achievable with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and above standard staff/children ratios across all the rooms.

This means you can feel confident your child is being nurtured by a team of qualified early childhood educators and accessing cutting edge programs based on the latest research into how children best learn.

Our entire philosophy is built around making your child feel welcome, happy and successful. We combine our early learning programs with the love, support and guidance that your child would receive at home. At Community Children our approach is underpinned by a sense of partnership. Family, early childhood educators and the community work together to build the best possible outcomes for children.
