About

Welcome to Duke Street Children's Centre!

Our Centre Duke Street Children’s Centre is not only a Long Day Care Centre in Maffra, but we also provide an integrated Kindergarten Program all under the one roof.

Duke Street Children’s Centre offers educational programs for children ages six weeks to six years taught by highly qualified educators ready to guide each child to reach their full potential.

Here at Duke Street Children’s Centre we have two spacious outdoor play scapes which allow the children to explore their natural surroundings, to embrace the natural elements and learn about sustainable practices.

All children are given the opportunity to help out in the centres vegetable & herb garden, helping with planting, watering and harvesting the produce. The produce is then used in our daily meals. This is a fantastic sense of belonging and identity that gives the children a true sense of pride and achievement.

Nutritious homemade meals are prepared on the premises on a daily basis with specific food requirements catered for.

Indoors we have four spacious rooms that cater for all the needs of the children including a separate sleep room for the babies complete with twinkling fairy lights.

Highly recommend this childcare facility. All three of my children have gone there from 8months till school and could not have been cared for or educated better. We were all sad to leave the staff now that our daycare era has finished and the youngest still asks about visiting!
