Commitment, care and community

Co-op is a unique community-run centre for children aged between 8 months and 5 years. A small centre with only 27 places, we focus on supporting local families through strong relationships and a commitment to early childhood care and education. We provide a warm, caring, safe, fun and stimulating play-based learning environment where children will experience care and attention appropriate to their age and stage of development.

We value parents’ involvement in Co-op and work in close partnership with them to support all aspects of their child’s learning and development.
