Bulldogs Community Children's Centre

Kinder now is free for 3 and 4-year-old children. Read more here.

Bulldogs Community Children's Centre is a state-of-the-art childcare centre located at the iconic Whitten Oval in Footscray. We have strong partnerships with the Western Bulldogs Football Club, Victoria University, Footscray City College, St Johns Primary School and the Fresh Program to extend children's learning. 

Unique to our centre are our resident pet rabbits where through caring for the children learn hands-on about responsibility, empathy, and compassion.

Incursions, excursions, nutritious meals and nappies are included within our daily childcare fee, which means there are no hidden costs for families.


Integrated four-year-old kindergarten

Our integrated kindergarten program is led by our wonderful bachelor-qualified teacher. It features a variety of play-based activities that help prepare children for the transition to school.

Our kindergarten program is a convenient and flexible option for families requiring care outside of kinder hours and during school holidays.

To ensure equitable and transparent access to childcare, the Council provides a Central Registration System (CRS) for all eligible children. If you wish to enrol your child at this Service, register via the Council’s CRS program on their website.
