About the project

We are building a 2-room kindergarten in Mount Waverley that will provide up to 92 new kindergarten places for the local community. The hub will include a maternal and child health space and immunisation and consulting rooms. There is also a community playgroup space.

This centre was previously known by the name of Dorrington Early Years Hub. 


This project is part of the Building Blocks Partnership between the Victorian Government and the City of Monash. The Victorian Government has invested $13.3 million to support 6 projects. These will create up to 363 new kindergarten places in the local government area.
