Bayswater early years hub

Information display

An information display was held on Saturday 17 June from 10am to 12pm at Blue Hills Children and Family Centre, 41-43 Phyllis Street Bayswater.

Local residents and community members were invited to view the building plans for the new centre in Bayswater and ask questions about this new facility.

Knox City Council Mayor, Cr Darren Pearce and local councillor Adam Gill both attended during the morning, as did a number of residents and community members. Thanks to all who attended and for the feedback received.

May update

Works on the new centre in Bayswater are progressing within the schedule, with concept plans currently being finalised. Council Officers expect to commence the tender for detailed design in June 2017 and tender for construction in November 2017.

For now though, it is business as usual for all of our services. Our team is committed to working together with you to deliver a high quality, responsive service with your children at the centre of our focus and effort. We are also committed to working with you when it is time to transition to our exciting new locations. We will keep you up to date with regular bulletins and we will be inviting you to contribute to the transition planning and to tell us how we can support you and your child/ren to settle in to the new service facilities.

Please email early.years@knox.vic.gov.au or contact Neda Moghaddas on 9298 8000, for any questions that you may have on this project.
