Give your child a great start in life at one of the City of Melbourne’s network of family-centred long day care and integrated kindergarten services.
Our staff promote early learning, diversity and resilience, and ensure children have their voices heard. We also challenge children to be creative and innovative to help nurture future leaders.
Looking to the future, we’re working to co-locate more services for children and families to make it even easier for young families to access integrated support.
In North Melbourne, Lady Huntingfield Early Learning and Family Services Centre has been rebuilt into a multifunctional centre to better meet the needs of the growing and diverse population.
The new centre offers childcare, kindergarten, maternal child health and immunisation services, parenting support services and playgroups under one roof.
