Fawkner Park Children’s Centre and Kindergarten is licensed for 74 children and offers excellence in care and early childhood education. It is a centre that nurtures children, supports families and builds communities.
The centre has always received the highest level of accreditation by the National Childcare Accreditation Council.
With its home in the beautiful grounds of Fawkner Park in South Yarra, the centre’s buildings are provided by the City of Melbourne as part of its commitment to family services. This includes the spacious 2010 extension.
Open from 7.30am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday, the centre offers full- and part-time care and education.
The centre is a cooperative, with a parent committee of management. Parent ideas and involvement are an essential part of the centre’s operation.
Closing on public holidays, for an annual Christmas break and for three non-contact days each year to enable staff development, training and planning, the centre is otherwise open throughout school holidays.
