Ellerman Child Care Centre undergoes transformation

Renovation works at Ellerman Child Care Centre in Dural have now been completed after Council installed a brand new shade sail.

The Centre, which is known for teaching children life-time skills, including how to grow their own food and cook with healthy ingredients, has undergone a number of improvements, including upgrades to the kitchen, playground, bathroom and pathway to make the childcare facility more modern, inclusive and accessible to parents and children.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said the renovations have aided in giving children the very best start in early education.

“As a working mother, I am absolutely passionate about the provision of quality childcare services in our community and that is why Council is committed to investing in first-rate early learning facilities in The Hills,” Mayor Byrne said.

“Ellerman Child Care Centre has long been trusted as a safe place where kids are encouraged to explore, discover and learn through interacting with nature and with each other. They work together in their very own vegie patch, cook together to create delicious meals from the food they grow and play together in natural open spaces.

“Ellerman’s team of respected early educators are committed to enthusiastically helping children to learn and grow, and these wonderful and essential upgrades allow children to reach their full potential,” Mayor Byrne added.

Ellerman Child Care Centre is a not-for-profit service for children aged from six weeks to five years.

The Council-owned Centre has vacancies still available in the two to three year old group and preschool room.
