A big start for little people

Welcome to Hobsons Bay Children’s Centre, I am proud to say the Service has been operational for over 20 years and I have been sole owner/director for 17 years. I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family and know your decision is the best choice for your child’s health & wellbeing as choosing the right education and care environment for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make.

Fostering a love of learning and encouraging children to be curious is at the heart of our philosophy. In the first five years, children learn more quickly than at any other stage of their life. Our highly qualified and caring educators will guide your child on their learning journey through our nurturing and teaching guidelines unique to HBCC.

At our Service our aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can develop their intellectual social, emotional, physical aesthetic skills to become competent, confident and happy individuals. Our commitment to you as a parent/guardian is for you to feel safe in the knowledge that your child is receiving the best possible start in life.

We believe the best way to work with you and your child is by building a partnership of care, this includes being involved in making decisions about your child’s experiences and learning outcomes. Our sense of community and mutual respect is of upmost importance and we look forward to welcoming you and your family to be part of our family here at Hobsons Bay Children’s Centre.
