About our programs

Corangamite Shire Council - Family & Children's Services - Harmony Day.jpg

Our communities include Camperdown, Terang, Cobden, Timboon, Port Campbell Simpson, Skipton and Western Plains (Derrinallum and Lismore). We provide early education and care services in all of these communities.

We operate 7 kindergartens, and provide childcare programs at Port Campbell, Ecklin, Glenormiston, Derrinallum, Lismore and Skipton, along with After Kindergarten Care in Timboon and Terang. We operate a small Long Day Care Centre in Camperdown with limited places. The services offer play based early learning programs for children at Community Halls and Recreation Reserve facilities and Kindergartens. During 2021 we expanded the Cobden and Skipton Kindergartens due to program growth.

We have been in Tranche 2 of the State Government reforms delivering 15 hours of kindergarten for 3YOs  since  2021.  This has meant our services have grown considerably and quickly. Due to our expansion, we have numerous positions available commencing now and in 2023.  We have a casual pool of Teachers and Educators and we welcome applications from people looking for casual and relief work as well as limited tenure and permanent roles.

All of our kindergartens display the Victorian Government Kinder Tick meaning we offer a funded approved program led by a qualified teacher, provision of play-based learning and a program that complies with government guidelines and the National Quality Framework.
