A NEW community centre providing services to the Wollert community has opened on Macedon Parade.
The Ganbu Gulinj Community Centre, which means ‘One Mob’ in Wurundjeri language, includes a modern three-room kindergarten with space for up to 99 children, two fully-equipped maternal and child health suites and a public community room.
The new $7 million facility is part of the City of Whittlesea’s long-term plan to provide Wollert residents with access to key infrastructure and services.
With an average of 76 babies born in the municipality each week, council has committed to boosting construction of community hubs like Ganbu Gulinj Community Centre to provide additional kindergarten places and maternal and child-health services in the city’s fastest-growing suburbs.
Council’s maternal and child health service is free for families with children from birth to school age and aims to optimise the health, wellbeing and development of children and their families. People can make appointments or learn more by calling 9404 8888.
Ganbu Gulinj Kindergarten is now accepting four-year old kindergarten enrolments for term one, 2021.
People can enrol their children by visiting www.whittlesea.vic.gov.au/kinder.
More information about the centre’s three-year-old kindergarten program is available by contacting Kids First at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ganbu Gulinj Community Centre was built by the City of Whittlesea with support from the Victorian Government and Lendlease.
