About

Wimble Street Child Care Cooperative is a small parent-run centre that consistently achieves an ‘exceeding’ standard of excellence as assessed by the ACECQA (Australian Children’s Education & Care Authority).

We offer 30 places across three rooms and healthy and delicious meals for the children cooked on-site by our Wimble cooks. We also provide each child with a blanket for nap time and a Wimble Street hat for lots of sun safe outdoor play. Our Centre is open 8am to 5.45pm and the Centre provides morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, catering to your child’s dietary needs.

Our front and middle rooms are multi-aging rooms. There is a significant body of literature that suggests that ‘family groupings’, that is multi-age groups, allow younger children the benefits of learning from and watching the skills of older children. Older children also benefit through the helping and caring relationships they form with their younger peers. 

Our four year old kinder program is acclaimed by parents and includes one of the first bush kinder programs established in Victoria. You can read more about our programs and teaching and learning philosophy here. A key element of Wimble’s supportive and engaging environment for children must be attributed to our educators who have more than 50 years of working at Wimble between them. Wimble is proud of our record of retaining quality staff, most of our staff members have been at Wimble for 5 years or more and this translates into a stable, consistent and tailored environment of care for our children.

What a fantastic childcare and kinder! We have sent our two children to the centre, and they excitedly run to the gate each week. The educators really do know each and every child so well. Both kids LOVE bush kinder at Royal Park. What a caring and special place for our whole family to be a part of.

We love being a part of the Wimble St community and are so lucky to have found such a great centre for our kids. We have really appreciated the enthusiasm and efforts from the staff and other parents that have gone into creating a kind and welcoming environment.

Enquired via email almost a month ago as advertised on their webpage, did not get any response whatsoever. Sent the online enrolment form on the same day and again, no response at all. Very unprofessional management to say the least.

Wimble street is a home away from home for my 2 boys. The teachers are warm, caring, clever and creative. The Bush Kinder program for Kinder’s is amazing and the community of families are lovely and supportive.

All of my kids look forward to going to Wimble! It's a friendly welcoming community for kids and their parents. Great staff running a variety of great activities for the kids.

Two kids attending Wimble - the teachers are really invested in the children and give them lots of attention, regular excursions and different activities for the kids, and the community of parents is socially very rewarding. Can't recommend enough
