Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Darebin City Council is developing a new Early Years Infrastructure Plan. This is a plan for the buildings and spaces that will be needed so that young children and families can get the services they need over the next 20 years. We are now seeking feedback on our draft Early Years Infrastructure Plan. Help us understand and respond to your priorities.

What has happened so far?

The draft Early Years Infrastructure Plan focuses on the facilities Darebin needs to provide key services and programs for children aged 0-6 and their families including maternal and child health services, kindergarten, long day care, occasional care, playgroups and toy libraries.

The draft Plan has been informed by an assessment of the early years facilities that Council currently owns and the changing context that will shape the community’s future needs including population growth and changes to policy, funding and service provision.

Based on this, Council has developed 12 principles to guide decision-making about early years infrastructure and a set of actions to deliver the buildings and spaces the community needs.

What’s happening now?

We are seeking feedback from the community and early years service providers on the draft Plan. Please provide your feedback on the principles and actions in the draft Plan. Your feedback will help us to understand community priorities as we move to the next stage of developing our delivery plan.
