Merrilands Children’s Centre and Kindergarten

About the Centre

The Merrilands Children’s Centre and Kindergarten is a welcoming environment where all children and families are respected. Enrolments are centralised through Darebin Council, see details below. You can also arrange to visit the centre by making an appointment.

We enjoy nurturing and developing the curiosity of children through the wide range of opportunities we offer them, which they may not have at home. One example of this is the Reptile Encounters and Egg Hatching program we ran. This included activities such as a bug hunt as well as feeding and hands on play time with safe animals. The program taught children about different animals and their origins, enhancing their knowledge about native Australian wildlife. Children also learnt to be responsible for the welfare of chicks after they hatched.
