Hobsons Bay City Council are building a new integrated children's centre at Altona P-9 College.
The Victorian Government is committed to providing high quality early years programs to give every child the best start in life.
Through the Children’s Facilities Capital Program, we are supporting local governments and other service providers to invest in early childhood infrastructure. This funding will respond to growing demand for places, raise the quality of learning environments and improve access to services for children from vulnerable and/or disadvantaged families.
Integrated children's centres are key hubs for the community, bringing together a range of services where professionals work together to deliver education, care, health and support services to children and their families. They can provide a focal point for new communities in growth areas, but are equally valuable in improving the accessibility, quality and integration of early childhood services in established metropolitan and regional areas.
The Altona Early Years Hub will see long day care, three and four-year-old kindergarten, maternal child health services, playgroups, parenting services, intervention services and family support services all under one roof.
The hub will have the licensed capacity of 157 places and has been designed with multi-use, flexible spaces that will support an integrated and seamless delivery of early years services to families.
