We are a 45 place childcare centre providing care and education for children aged from 18 months of age. We aim to make Co-op a warm and caring environment, in which each individual can feel safe, secure, and a sense of belonging, whilst being valued as a unique and precious person.
One of Co-op’s distinctive characteristics is that we offer a blended age group program. Children play together in a supportive, family-like environment. They are cared for by a team of friendly, welcoming and skilled early childhood professionals.
We also offer a Kindergarten Program, provided by qualified Early Childhood Teachers and funded by the Victorian State Government.
Ivanhoe Co-op is managed by parents who use the centre. The Board of Directors work in conjunction with the Coordinator to ensure that the childcare provided is of the highest quality.
We acknowledge the support of the Victorian Government in providing this high quality Program
