We are sustainable, culturally diverse, welcome all abilities and are unique in the longevity of our staff.

Opened in June 1977, Coburg Children’s Centre was the first government-subsidised childcare centre in the former City of Coburg. In 1994 the Coburg City Council signed an agreement delegating full management and financial responsibility to a community-based Board of Management – we became Coburg Children’s Centre Incorporated. We have a Lease Agreement with Moreland City Council external_link_icon as a ‘sponsor’ only, providing building use and some building maintenance, not direct ongoing financial assistance.
