Wheelers Hill Child Care Centre - News & Events

At Wheelers Hill Child Care Centre, we endeavour to keep families well informed on news, events, programs, achievements and information. We regularly send out newsletters and post on our Facebook account, strengthening the lines of communication between families and the centre, as well as the wider community. 

We pride ourselves on hosting events that provide our families with opportunities to visit the centre and get involved. Each year, we develop a calendar full of family activities, incursions, special days, and charitable fundraising opportunities.  We also embrace celebrations and days of observance that are important to our families, staff, and community, including cultural and religious holidays.
