Welcome to Daylesford Community Childcare Centre!

We are a Not-For-Profit Community centre run by a parent committee in Daylesford, in the Hepburn Shire. Our centre has 79 spaces available for children aged between six weeks and 12 years. We operate five rooms in the centre, including an Funded integrated 4 year old kinder program.

Our Centre runs the Outside School Hours Care services which collects children from Hepburn Primary School, Daylesford Primary School, Dharma School and St Michaels Primary School;  and provides an educational and fun program every afternoon during school terms. Each school holidays, we run a holiday program to school-aged children that attracts childcare subsidy.

We oversee Family Day Care services across the shire, with a collection of educators providing education and care for children up to 13 years of age in their homes.  Family Day Care offers In-Venue Family Day Care provided in an approved venue such as a school or community hall.

Our centre was founded in 1989 and is an Incorporated Association and managed by parents who form a Committee of Management. We provide accredited quality care and aim to encourage children to be actively involved in the learning process, to experience a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and to pursue their own interests in the context of life in the community and the world.
