Welcome to Ivanhoe Co-op!

We are a 42 place childcare centre providing care and education for children aged from 18 months to 6 years of age.  Our aim is to make Co-op a warm and caring environment, where each individual feels safe, secure, and a sense of belonging, whilst being valued as a unique  person.

One of Co-op’s distinctive characteristics is that we offer a blended age group program where children can 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 Government funded Kindergarten Program that is run by qualified Early Childhood Teachers.

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.
