This Altona Early Years Hub provides families with a state-of-the-art early years facility located on the site of the Altona College P-9 School. At the heart of this facility is the belief that each child is a competent learner from birth. The hub's team of nurturing and experienced educators deliver high quality and inclusive childcare (from birth to six years) and three and four-year-old kindergarten programs that help each child realise their potential. Educators partner with you – your child’s most important educator – to develop a play-based learning program that encourages your child to expand their capacities and deepen their understanding of the world. In turn, your child will develop vital social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive skills. Even more importantly, educators ensure your child is safe, secure and happy while in our centre.
