Children's Services

Council has 26 childcare facilities catering for 4000 children each year. Our services include long day care, preschool and programs for school age children up to 12. Our centres provide a safe, secure and inclusive environment for all children, including children with additional needs. All our centres are not for profit, so all proceeds go back into your child's education.
