Knox Early Years Hubs Projects 2016 - 2019

About the Knox Children and Family Centre (Wantirna South) and Knox Children and Family Centre (Bayswater)

Council-run child care facilities have undergone substantial improvement to co-locate and integrate a range of early learning and family support services to better support children and their families.

Council's five long day care and occasional care services have been consolidated into two new early years hubs. Each centre includes:

Where the new Knox Children and Family Centres will be located
  • Maternal and child health
  • Four-year-old sessional preschool
  • Playgroups
  • Long day care
  • Occasional care (Wantirna South only)

These specially designed centres are at 81 Argyle Way in Wantirna South (formerly the Knox Gardens Preschool site) and 41 Phyllis St in Bayswater (formerly the Blue Hills Children and Family Centre site). The centres provide modern facilities and improved services to young children and their families in Knox.

Careful consideration was given to the design of these centres to make sure that they met the needs of all children, including providing safety for younger children as well as challenging older children.
