Children’s centre

Elizabeth Grove Children’s Centre provides a range of programs and services to support your child’s early years learning.

Our programs


If your child turns 4 before 1 May, they can start preschool at the beginning of the year. If your child turns 4 on or after 1 May, they can start the next year. Preschool children are entitled to 15 hours of preschool a week.

Children who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, as well as Children in Care, are eligible for 12 hours of preschool after they turn 3. They will then be eligible for 15 hours per week of preschool as soon as they turn 4.

Occasional Care

Occasional Care is for children under school age who do not attend preschool or childcare. Our centre offers an Occasional Care program once a week for children aged from 6 months until they are able to attend preschool.


We run a number of free playgroups at the centre. Playgroup is an interactive, fun opportunity for children and parents to play and learn together.

Parenting and community support

We offer a range of parenting and community support programs. These programs are supported by allied health professionals such as occupational therapists and speech pathologists, a community development officer and other local services and organisations.

Please phone the centre on 8255 7515 if you require further information about any of our services or programs.
