Welcome to Clifton Street Children’s Centre

We're a community run centre, offering childcare programs and kindergarten. Our premises are council owned and located in a quiet area of Northcote. At Clifton Street CC we provide children and families a warm, safe, caring and educational environment that supports children’s learning and development. We passionately believe in the importance of Early Childhood Education and advocate for the rights of children.

Clifton Street CC staff work together with families and children to provide a stimulating and inclusive environment where children’s individual care and education needs are met daily. Educators understand the importance of modelling caring, deep and trusting relationships with children, families and each other.

We are dedicated to providing high quality care and education programs for children, which are accessible and affordable. These programs are sensitive to, and reflect the diverse and changing needs of the children, families and staff within the centre as well as the broader community and the early childhood field.

The centre offers four rooms, catering to children from 6 months old to the year before school. We also house a Maternal Health Centre.  Both our indoor and outdoor learning and play spaces have been specifically designed for children and families.
