Learn Local in Knox

Adult Learning Centre, Neighbourhood House or Community House - whatever the name, these places are the heart of the Knox community. More recently referred to as Learn Local organisations, the Houses provide a great range of affordable social, educational and recreational activities within a welcoming and supportive environment.

There are five Learn Local organisations in Knox and each varies in their focus and activities to cater for many different interests in the community and provide friendly, supportive local meeting places.

You can "learn local" with a wide variety of short courses and nationally accredited training programs, but each organisation offers so much more than just short courses.

Coonara is a registered childcare provider with occasional childcare and three year old kinder.
Rowville has a Vacation Care Program which operates during school holidays and provides a large range of dance, singing and art classes for children.
Mountain District Learning Centre offers adult education including literacy, numeracy and VCE as well as a youth education program including VCAL, VCE and VET courses.
Mountain District Learning Centre and Coonara are also registered training organisations offering a range of qualifications in community services, children's services and Certificate IV in Training and Assessment to name a few.

These Learn Local organisations also offer many opportunities to participate in the Knox community apart from learning. These include community food gardens, men’s shed, book clubs, support groups, sewing and patchwork groups, bus trips, garden club, activities for children and adults with special needs, free internet access and more.
