Our community is crying out for accessible, free childcare. In December, Port Phillip Council voted to sell the premises of three existing community-run childcare centres in our community, in St Kilda, Elwood and Balaclava. We know how hard it is to find local, affordable childcare in our neighbourhood. Childcare is an essential public service, and for our kids, the early years are the most important in their development.
Join us on Wed 2 February from 6pm at the Betty Day Community Centre for an open community forum to discuss how we can push to save these centres.
A note on accessibility: We welcome volunteers of all abilities, diversity of genders, sexual identities, racial backgrounds, cultures, languages and experiences to join and get involved. If you require any reasonable adjustments to feel comfortable or to be able to fully participate in this event, please get in contact with us.
We acknowledge that these events take place on the land of the Boonwurrung people of the Kulin Nation, that sovereignty was never ceded and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
