Darebin Childcare & Kindergarten is a community run, non-profit organisation.
We have a committee of management, all existing parents are welcome to join the committee and have their say. We have meetings every month and enjoy a lovely dinner together at the end of the year. Please see office for more information.
Storypark has been a real hit, with parents being able to see what their children have been up to and share it with their family and friends. It is a great way for parents to be able to communicate with the Educators if they forgot to mention something on pick up and drop off.
Our service operates from Monday to Friday 7:00am – 6:00pm
