ABOUT US

Eltham Child Care Cooperative (ECCC) is a not-for-profit centre operating since 1986. We are registered as a charity and governed by parents with the support of Nillumbik Shire Council for the benefit of the local community.

Our aim is to provide high quality childcare and education for children from birth to six years in a truly inclusive environment. We offer equal opportunities for all children and their families, embracing their cultures, unique personalities and varying needs.

The Centre maintains a rustic feel and is in a beautiful location, close to the heart of Eltham and the train station.


The Educators at ECCC are highly trained Early Childhood Professionals with a wide variety of strengths and backgrounds, ECCC Educators undertake regular professional development and training. All our educators have a passion for providing supportive and nurturing environments for children and families and respect that each learning journey is unique and precious.

Eltham Child Care Cooperative acknowledges the traditional custodians, past and present, of the land that the ECCC centre is on - the Wurundjeri clan.
