Lilydale Lakeside Children's Centre

Offering childcare and kindergarten services for children aged between six weeks and six years. We care about the children and welcome them into our program, gently introducing them into their new environment.

The children are given time to become acquainted with one another, with our educators, room activities and materials. Gradually, they gain a sense of belonging as they come to know the routines, staff and layout of the centre.
